Wednesdays@Noon: Teaching with the Archives--The Schramm Company Records as a Case Study

Wednesdays@Noon: Teaching with the Archives--The Schramm Company Records as a Case Study Online

Archival collections offer many possibilities for engaging students and helping them develop research and critical thinking skills. Under Drexel Professor Lloyd Ackert’s supervision, several undergraduate research co-ops have pursued in-depth projects on a range of topics using the records of Schramm, Inc., a manufacturing company based in West Chester, PA, which is held at Drexel University Archives.

Join Lloyd Ackert, Teaching Professor of History in the College of Arts & Sciences, and Matthew Lyons, University Archivist, for this Wednesdays@Noon webinar! Professor Ackert and Mr. Lyons will give an overview of how these projects were developed, the student and faculty experience working with the Archives staff, and the broader possibilities of teaching with archival materials.

Presented by: Matthew Lyons, University Archivist, and Lloyd Ackert, Professor of History
