Abstract

As we live through the significant challenges of pandemic, information wars, climate change, and war in Europe, what skills do current students and future practitioners need to cope with managing digital materials in our historical moment? What might a holistic syllabus encompassing DP skills, knowledge, and personal qualities alongside awareness of social and political trends, and an understanding of the interplay between the two, look like in a Higher Education context? This workshop aims to discuss and disrupt the ideas around Digital Curation (DC) and Digital Preservation (DP) education for future professionals and those managing digital collections. It will bring together stakeholders drawn from the those delivering DP education, those learning, employers, and practitioners, to interrogate and reflect on the suitability of existing curricula in Higher Education (HE) for a changing world.
