Bruce Peel Special Collections offers a series of Peel Workshops each term to provide a wide range of hands-on and experiential learning opportunities to those University of Alberta students who are motivated to sign up. We receive far more requests for class visits than we can accommodate, so we came up with the idea of Peel Workshops as an alternative to such class visits. These workshops explore generalized versions of a selection of the topics that we have been teaching for years. The schedule/topics are posted well before the beginning of each term and registration opens on the first day of classes.
Bruce Peel Special Collections is home to important collections of rare and sometimes fragile materials. Like researchers and other visitors, Peel Workshop participants are asked to help preserve these materials for future generations. Here is what you need to know before you come to a workshop:
Advance registration is required and numbers are strictly limited. Workshops are open to University of Alberta students (both graduate and undergraduate), and sometimes to staff, faculty, and others, as indicated. Each individual may sign up for a maximum of two Peel Workshops per term. Those who register and then find that they cannot attend should cancel their registration at least 24 hours in advance.
