Digital Preservation Education Working Group

The strength of the Australasia Preserves community comes from its grass-roots passion to share. Australasia Preserves recognised education and training for digital preservation as a top priority from its beginning. At its first meeting in February 2018 there was discussion around the idea of developing ‘digital preservation carpentry’ lessons. Throughout 2018 more discussion and activities revealed the importance of making sure digital preservation concepts were tightly coupled with tool experimentation. A survey to find out what people were interested in learning most was carried out.
 
 A digital preservation carpentry workshop was piloted in February 2019 at the 14th International Digital Curation Conference. Community discussion at the Australasia Preserves February 2019 monthly online meeting resulted in a decision to convene a working group on digital preservation education comprising educators and professionals. Its aim was to further develop and finalise the digital preservation carpentry workshop, and to develop a more formal educational framework for designing and delivering digital preservation training. Material will be hosted by the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) and will also be available to communities in other parts of the world. The activities of the working group are actively helping to improve digital preservation practice training and education in the Australasian region.

How to Fail Your PhD

How to Fail Your Research Degree was created to deliver knowledge and understanding of research processes and techniques, within the context of a postgraduate training programme at Glasgow School of Art. Development was in relation to the concepts of encouraging creativity and risk-taking within a safe game environment and of learning by (potentially) failing. Game characteristics and intended learning outcomes were defined, leading to game mechanics and text that emphasise player agency, working within a time limit, and humour. Evaluation shows that the game is highly successful at delivering the intended learning outcomes and is a memorable and enjoyable complement to the existing course curriculum.
