What should be the outcomes of archival education programs? Are graduates of archival education programs equipped to find and succeed in their first professional positions? Should programs focus on traditional archival skills, or should they focus on technology and digital specializations? In this participatory discussion, a diverse panel of archival educators, managers, and visionaries will respond to questions about community expectations and aspirations for the future of archival education. Audience participation is encouraged.
