Teaching Traditional Skills With Technology:  Book Repair and =
Videoconferencing=20
Sunday, January 16, 2000
CC 216B, 12:00 - 2:00

Co-Chair:  Karen Brown, Northeast Document Conservation Center
Co-Chair:  Janice Mohlhenrich, Emory University

Description

Teaching book repair has traditionally been accomplished by pairing
learners with qualified instructors in a hands-on workshop setting.  The
logistics of such a teaching strategy can be frustrating.  There are a
great many people who would like to learn preservationally sound repair
techniques, and few effective and qualified instructors to teach them.
Most often potential learners work in small libraries.  Attending a
workshop can impose financial hardships as well as leave the library
understaffed.  Limited funding for travel and staff development often
precludes attendance at book repair workshops by the individuals who
will be responsible for doing book repair.

In this session, discussion will center on the potential for adapting
video teleconferencing technology to deliver effective book repair
training to learners at a distance.  Video teleconferencing enables
learners and instructors to ineract "live," that is, in real time.  The
instructor can gauge learner's progress and demonstrate techniques to an
on-site and distant group simultaneously.  Laura Kimberly, Training
Manager for AMIGOS will share her experiences using this technology.  In
addition, a short videotape of a pilot book repair training session
taught by Ann Frellsen, Conservator in the Preservation Office of Emory
University will offer opportunities to explore the strengths and
limitations of the technology.

Discussion topics will include an overview of the necessary technology;
helpful hints on videoconferencing; early lessons learned; and the
differences in the learning experience when training is delivered
through technology versus the traditional workshop setting.  The
feasibility of delivering this training will also be addressed in
discussion of the availability of sites that can accommodate video
teleconferencing.

Participants are encouraged to explore ways in which this technology
could expand the delivery of training to wider audiences, and to join in
frank discussion of what would be needed to initiate successful,
collaborative teaching using this equipment.
