        Subject: Registration open for Framing the Digital Curation Curriculum workshop

Registration has opened for a Framing the Digital Curation Curriculum: A DigCurV workshop, a free one-day event which forms part of the ongoing work to design a Curriculum Framework in digital curation.  The workshop will be held in Florence on 10th December 2012.

DigCurV presents this one-day free workshop which will take place on the periphery of the Online Heritage conference which is also taking place in Florence in December 2012.  The workshop will inform the development of a Curriculum Framework for Digital Curation.  Working within three key areas, we discuss the design of the curriculum from the perspective of the Executive, the Practitioner and the Manager.  The workshop will feature high profile expert guest speakers from the field of digital curation, as well as the opportunity to provide feedback on the development of the Curriculum Framework.

DigCurV brings together a network of partners to address the availability of vocational training for digital curators in the library, archive, museum and cultural heritage sectors needed to develop new skills that are essential for the long-term management of digital collections.
Professionals, practitioners and executives working in the field of digital curation are encouraged to participate in this workshop.

• How do we self-evaluate our skills and knowledge as digital curators to keep current in our field?
• What training is required for those working in digital curation at the Practitioner, Manager and Executive levels?
• What challenges are there in designing digital curation training?

To discuss these issues, join us for this workshop!
