109. Pop-Up: The Elephant in the Room: Archivists' Technological Competencies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Do we have the technological competencies archivists need to be effective using 21st century technologies? How do we stay up-to-date with current and emerging technologies? Are opportunities available to gain knowledge and skills with emerging technologies? Please join us for a conversation about why we must develop technological competencies, as they are critical to our professional practice.  
This pop-up session is intended for anyone who is interested in discussing the challenges of dealing with rapidly changing technologies. It will be an open-discussion about the varying levels of technological knowledge and skills present in the profession. This is an opportunity to take a critical look at our professional practice and our relationship with technology.
