Archivists frequently are called on to teach, but most have had no training in education theory and practice. To counter this, the Dartmouth College Library has developed a summer institute to train archivists in active learning pedagogy. Two panelists (who are instructors) define active learning and describe the role of the institute, and three participants from the inaugural class describe how they have applied lessons learned in the months since.
