Partner Event: Getty Conservation Institute Virtual Lounge - Online Teaching Tools (Pre-Registration Required)

Attend
Overview

To access this program, you must receive a confirmation email from the Getty Conservation Institute and use that link to access the session. You won’t be able to access the session through this meeting portal.

Join Lynda, Joyce, Rebecca, and Amanda for a conversation about the impact of the pandemic on teaching and research, and how to find suitable teaching tools if you can’t go to the library. Shortly after COVID-19 forced academic institutions to temporarily close in March of last year, Joyce contacted AATA about abstracting freely available recordings to aid remote teaching. Ever since, Rebecca, Amanda, and AATA staff have been identifying useful videos, submitting those with abstracts, and writing abstracts for those without. This will be an opportunity to talk about various types of online audiovisual materials and who is posting them, and their usefulness for research and teaching. 

What is the Virtual Lounge?

Join a Getty Conservation Institute host for a coffee break or happy hour (depending on your time zone) in the Virtual Lounge, every Wednesday during the conference for an informal conversation focused on a different theme.  There will be a limited number of participants so that everyone will have a chance to engage in a relaxed environment and meet some new colleagues.
