Dutch Digital Heritage Network: Training and Education

In this project we are developing a training programme in which employees of heritage institutions gain the knowledge they need to make digital heritage visible, usable and sustainable. They can then get started with the facilities that are available in the network. We are also creating a train-the-trainer programme to ensure that there are enough professionals who can transfer the knowledge. If we want to increase the active use of digital heritage collections, we must start by making those collections permanently accessible, preferably in open formats. The relevant knowledge and expertise that is available varies from institution to institution. That is why the Digital Heritage Network strives to ensure adequate support for heritage institutions with, as yet, insufficient expertise. Everyone should be able to receive tailor-made knowledge and advice for improving the accessibility of digital heritage.

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.
