Speed dating asheville

Knowing that this was a one-semester project, we kept certain parameters in mind as we curated collections for this “speed dating” class, selecting collections that met the following criteria: Why this emphasis on pre-selecting collections?

UNCA requires a final capstone research project for all majors, and we have seen some students struggle to settle on a research topic.

We also knew that, in addition to choosing a topic, some might experience learning curves with the technology involved in Digital History projects. Pearson and I agreed that pre-selecting particular collections for the students to choose from would allow the students to concentrate on their research and mastering the technology.

When the class came in, we had arranged representative materials from the six collections on tables around the reading room – setting the stage for “speed dating.” We walked around and introduced each collection to the students, describing the content, research possibilities, and the kinds of images and graphics in each collection.

We assisted them with documents, helped them with scanning, consulted on finding secondary materials, helped them navigate copyright issues, and generally helped them with the primary resource component of their digital history projects. Pearson was very positive – they found the “Speed Dating” to be an effective way to gain a short, intensive immersion into each collection’s possibilities.
