Teaching has become a more prevalent and rigorous part of the archival profession over the last two decades. While the majority of the established literature and case studies on the subject focus on university settings, this thesis examines the results of qualitative interviews with teaching archivists in institutions outside of university settings. The results show that the active learning methods of universities have largely been embraced by non-university archivists, but also show that the profession remains in flux in terms of training and transitioning away from more passive methods. This study can be used to implement or improve teaching programs in non-university institutions of all sizes and reflect a need for wider training in teaching and encouragement of pedagogical training in institutions and library science schools.
