Session 1: Introduction
Teaching collections are:
1. Classroom based vs. institutional level collections
2. Faculty initiated and developed – we want faculty thinking and talking about the metadata – how tools will be used. Also talking to media resource specialists – how best to capture material objects – photograph them.
3. Faculty managed – faculty are the ones who are responsible for managing and handling the collections.
4. Instructionally focused – what is the application of these types of resources in the classroom? Focusing on the higher order thinking skills.
