Visual Resources Association Foundation Regional Workshop Program: Call for Instructors

The Visual Resources Association Foundation welcomes applicants to serve as instructors for the VRAF Regional Workshop Program. This new pilot program, supported by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, is dedicated to providing localized education and professional development opportunities in visual resources and image management.  The program will offer a menu of workshops and roster of qualified instructors, allowing host institutions and regional chapters who are selected for workshop funding to choose which workshop is the best suited for their community.  The workshops will provide an immersive experience on a single topic, framed in a manner that is relevant to image management professionals, image users, and the broader information community.

We seek instructors with the appropriate background and experience to teach the following workshops:

  • Collaboration: Visual Resources Centers, Libraries, and Archives
  • Exhibit, Instruct, Promote: Using Omeka
  • Fundamentals of Visual Resources
  • Metadata and Image Management: From Fundamentals to Future Trends
  • Visual Literacy

Instructors will receive a stipend, and travel and lodging expenses will be compensated. If you are interested in serving as an instructor for the VRAF Regional Workshop Program, please submit your curriculum vitae and a statement of interest outlining your experience and qualifications to Maureen Burns, by May 23, 2015.
