Apply NOW to the Digital POWRR Digital Preservation Professional Development Institute!
(Apologies for cross-posting. Please distribute widely!)
The Digital POWRR team invites applications for the final 2-day institute funded in this grant cycle; to be held on March 12-13, 2019 at the George Washington University campus. Travel scholarships are available for those with financial need.
An ideal candidate for a POWRR institute may be someone who fits some of these descriptions:
Someone who works in a “boots on the ground” role (this could be any range of positions in the cultural heritage sector, but the idea is that your primary role is not one as an administrator)
Someone who has been exposed to basic digital preservation concepts, but who has struggled with moving from theory to practice
Someone who represents or serves historically underrepresented populations
Someone who is comfortable with basic technology, (navigating a basic computing environment) but who would benefit from instruction on more intermediate concepts
Someone employed by an institution unable to provide professional development funding adequate to attend other digital preservation training opportunities
Someone who works directly with digital materials, and who can work with POWRR instructors to start to create a rudimentary assessment document on digital preservation readiness at your own institution
Someone who would benefit from being a part of a small cohort of professionals like themselves, and who will put forth effort into sustaining these professional connections after the end of the Institute
