SAA's Records Management Section is hosting a coffee chat May 12th from 1-2pm ET to discuss records and information management education. I began working on this topic several years ago when I was chair of the RMS, and we submitted a proposal to SAA Education for a new certificate program. Somehow a global pandemic seems to have slowed the process. We did hold an earlier coffee chat to gather some ideas about the state of RIM education and have used that information to begin crafting a business plan to submit to SAA Council. Now there's a working group in the Committee on Education that's trying to polish the proposal, and we need to hear from the RIM community again. So please join us on May 12th for a virtual coffee chat. Please register in advance for this meeting: https://tamu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJItcOiprDsvGtSkCGg3vUOzLJ5DjD3argie. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Here are some questions we'd like to pose:
We hope to have a robust discussion with many of you next week. If you are unable to attend this session but have some feedback that could be useful to our process, please feel free to reach out to me directly.
