Join us for the Archaeological Institute of America’s Fourth Annual Conference for Heritage Educators!
There are two options for registration. If you plan to attend the AIA-SCS conference, including AIA/SCS paper sessions and the exhibit hall, the Heritage Educators conference will be included in your AIA-SCS Annual Meeting registration.
If you only plan to attend the Heritage Educators’ Conference on Saturday, you may register for just this event.
The event will be held: in the Regis Room at the Boston Marriott Copley Place (110 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA 02116). The AIA has arranged for room blocks at the Marriott and the Westin across the street. Click here for room rates and more information. I’ve heard especially nice things about the rooms in the Westin if you don’t mind walking across the street.
We are currently calling for presenters in two sessions:
New this year! Prepare and present a poster about an outreach project.
Deadline: December 1. Submissions accepted on a rolling basis. Submit your poster abstract here.
Lightning Show & Tell
Bring your favorite archaeology education material/resource and share it in 2-5 minutes! After the quick presentations, conference participants will have a chance to walk around and view all the materials presented.
Show and Tell items can be an activity developed, a handout, or even a book or resource compiled by you or someone else that you have found especially helpful in your work. The biggest challenge will be speedily presenting your show and tell item within the allotted time!
Deadline: December 1. Submissions accepted on a rolling basis. Submit a proposal here.
We’re looking forward to seeing many of you soon!
In advance of the Institute's 2015 Working Conference for Educators: Building a Strong Future for Archaeological Outreach and Education the AIA is soliciting a series of one-page descriptions of existing archaeological outreach and education programs. The Institute plans to collect, compile, and distribute these in advance of January’s working conference. As the goal is to be as comprehensive as possible, submissions are open to everyone and not restricted to just those attending the conference.
The publication of the program descriptions in advance of the conference will help focus the working event on the future or archaeological outreach and education. The aim is to provide conference participants with common ground so that the conference time can be spent on discussion of the future of archaeological outreach and education.
