On the periphery of the Cultural Heritage on line conference, Trusted Digital Repositories and Trusted Professionals,  the (Digital Curation Vocational Education Europe) network presented this FREE event, open to professionals, practitioners and executives working in the field of digital curation. 

DigCurV is funded by the European Commission’s Leonardo da Vinci programme to establish a curriculum framework for vocational training in digital curation.

  • 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?

The DigCurV network presented this 1-day workshop as part of their ongoing work to design a Curriculum Framework in digital curation.  Working within three key areas, we discussed the design of the curriculum from the perspective of the Executive, the Practitioner and the Manager.

The Workshop featured 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.

Thank you or all of those of you who joined, your input was invaluable.
