The Digital POWRR Peer Assessment Program is a supportive, year-long, cohort-based training program for cultural heritage professionals who are interested in learning and applying digital preservation assessment procedures into their work.
Three cohorts of six participants, each with a peer facilitator, will work over the course of one year to perform systematic analyses of each organization’s current stewardship practices, focusing on the creation of achievable goals and activities.
The first half of the training period will be dedicated to preparing for and performing two rapid self-assessments and one in-depth peer assessment. In the second half of the program, participants will work with peers and facilitators on setting goals, based on recommendations set forth in their peer assessments, and will start to work on tackling some of their digital stewardship challenges. This program will be delivered entirely online.
Benefits of participating include a $3,000 stipend, a $870 “Technology Start Up” award that can be provisioned towards helping to jump start digital preservation activities, the opportunity to publish a case studies and/or assessment reports as part of the project’s final white paper, and a collaborative network of colleagues.
