Speakers             Michele Winn, Kathryn Gronsbell, Ashley Blewer, Bryce Roe

The AMIA Education Committee, in collaboration with a cohort of AMIA student and professional members, will host this lightning talk/Q+A session to address issues and questions relevant to AV archivists in the first stages of their careers. With so few accessible academic opportunities focused on AV archiving, many students and early professionals must strategically gain these skills and experiences outside of the classroom. The panel offers an opportunity to discuss the need for curriculum development, while offering professional development strategies for early professionals, as well as tips for inreach and quality mentorship from experienced professionals. Speakers will cover topics addressed to both early and experienced professionals, including networking advice and job seeking and resume tips.This Open Session is hosted by the Education Committee and open to all.

6pm-7pm – AMIA Education Committee 1st Annual Student Mixer (Hotel Bar)

Students! Come join us for lite refreshments. We will have working professionals on hand to discuss their experience in the field. This is a great opportunity to also meet other students from various backgrounds in the field and of course make new friends and colleagues!

With new audiovisual archiving and preservation programs launching in London, Prague, Frankfurt and Potsdam, and significant changes taking place in some of the longest-running degree programs in this field, it’s time to take stock of the state of professional education in audiovisual preservation and archiving.
