21st Century Archaeologists
Teaching, training and professional development
One day conference to be held at the University of Winchester’s ‘Centre for Applied Archaeology and Heritage Management’
Tuesday 19 June 2012.
Four years ago, the Archaeology Training Forum expressed its concern at “an ongoing level of disconnect between the expectations of archaeological employers, employees, training providers and students of archaeology in terms of the objectives of training and its outcomes” (http://torc.org.uk/ATFvision.pdf).
This Centre for Applied Archaeology and Heritage Management (in association with Landward Research) day conference will look at how training can be innovatively used to effectively deliver what individuals and organisations need to develop new skills and knowledge, to keep capabilities up to date and to bridge that disconnect between training demand and supply. Papers will discuss issues which have been confronted and overcome, explaining how innovative approaches to training can best be developed, evaluated and employed, giving opportunity for discussion between individual professionals, learning developers, students and employers.
