    Descriptive info: Archive 2009.. Archive 2008.. Archive 2007.. Archive 2006.. Older News.. October 2011.. Launch of Journal of Irish Archaeology Vol XIX.. A wine reception to launch the latest issue of the Journal of Irish Archaeology (Volume XIX) will take place as part of the IAI Autumn Conference, on Friday 4 November at 7.. 30pm in the Gresham-Metropole Hotel, Cork.. It will be followed at 8.. 30pm by the Table Quiz.. For more information on the conference, please download the full programme and presentation abstracts from the.. conference information page.. September 2011.. Treatment of post-AD 1700 monument in the RMP.. It is proposed by the Department of Arts, Heritage the Gaeltacht that monuments dating to the period post- AD1700 will be delisted from the Record of Monuments Places (RMP), thus removing their statutory protection, and their conditioning within the planning system These monuments have been highlighted in green on the Department s website.. The Archaeological Survey of Ireland (ASI) has been locating, recording and describing the archaeological monuments of this country for several decades.. The criteria for selection, of monuments to be recorded in each county have, however, been variable.. Significant numbers of post-AD 1700 monuments have been included in the RMPs for Cork, Galway and Dublin, but not in a consistent manner.. In 1982, guidelines were provided the Cork Archaeological Survey advising them to survey everything up to 1700 and selectively afterwards.. A detailed and systematic survey was undertaken by the Cork Archaeological Survey in order to make an informed selection of post-AD 1700 monuments.. The ASI is currently preparing a revision of the RMP.. The ASI is obliged under government policy (2005 White Paper, Regulating Better ) to ensure that there is consistency across the recorded monument listings for each county.. Primarily due to limited resources, as well as a back-log in processing the previously collected datasets, the ASI is proposing that any post-AD 1700 monuments previously recorded on the RMP should be de-listed.. IAI has been in contact with both the Archaeological Survey and the National Monuments Service in relation to this issue and intend to continue this dialogue, at all levels, in order to ensure that the concerns of the Institute and its members in relation to this proposal are fully expressed and that possible solutions are explored.. We are confident that a suitable resolution can be achieved.. Autumn Conference 2011.. The Autumn Conference will take place on 4-5 November at the Gresham Metropole Hotel Cork.. The theme of the conference will be Heritage tourism and community initiatives:The value of communicating archaeology.. Papers are invited relevant to this theme; there will also be a session dedicated to short papers on current post-graduate research.. For more information see.. Changes to the IAI Website.. The IAI website will be rebuilt and restructured over the autumn, we hope to have a fully revamped website ready by early November.. However, as a result of these changes, there may be periods when the website is temporarily off-line, or where sections of the website are unavailable during the transition.. We apologise for any inconvenience as a result of this, but hope the new and improved website will compensate.. August 2011.. Changes to the Register of Members.. We are changing the..

At the IAI meeting held in University College Dublin on 26th June 2004, the IAI Board was tasked with establishing a means of improving communication and the dissemination of information and ideas between the members.. As a direct result of the discussions held at that meeting, the IAI Forum was established.. This is an internet-based forum or discussion group open to all current members of IAI.. There is no charge for subscribing.. Messages posted to the IAI Forum should relate to Irish archaeology, general archaeological theory and practice or topics and issues concerning IAI.. This is a fully moderated discussion list.. As Irish archaeologists (and those working in related fields) await to see how the recent changes in legislation will impact on the profession, and a number of sensitive cases regarding the impact of development on well-known archaeological sites and landscapes are currently ongoing, it is even more imperative that IAI members engage with one another.. The IAI membership asked for this facility.. However, in order for the IAI Forum to be of significant benefit to either the IAI or its membership, we need as many people as possible to sign up and get actively engaged in discussion on the crucial issues affecting Irish archaeology.. If you are a member of the Institute of Archaeologists of Ireland in good standing (that is, fully paid up) and would like to join the IAI Forum, please contact Teresa Bolger at ephemerae[AT]warpmail[DOT]net for more details..

  • Title: IAI CPD
    Descriptive info: CPD Framework.. Credit System.. Credit Record Sheet.. Course Calendar.. Opportunities for Course Providers.. Overview.. The Institute of Archaeologists of Ireland (IAI) recognises and encourages the need for all members of the archaeological profession, throughout their career, to expand their knowledge base and familiarise themselves with relevant technological innovations and their application to the study and practice of Irish archaeology.. The importance of accredited continuous professional development (CPD) is acknowledged by the IAI in both its Memorandum Articles of Association (Articles 104 105) and the Five-year programme (2003-2008) in which the Institute shall seek the involvement of all stakeholders in the creation of a programme of CPD development in Irish archaeology (Objective 3.. 4).. What is Continuous Professional Development?.. Professions have taken different approaches to continuous education and training in order to tailor their CPD programme of training to their individual profession and the quality management of professional practice.. There are four main ways of achieving learning in a CPD framework.. These are:.. Structured activities.. Skills training.. Key (accreditable) competencies.. Observable learning outcomes.. Each of these components were kept firmly at the foundations of the IAI CPD Framework.. The IAI approach to CPD.. The Institute s approach to CPD is open, inclusive, flexible and accessible.. The Institute is developing a strategic approach to CPD that will ensure high and sustainable competence standards for the archaeological profession.. CPD is the responsibility of the individual archaeologist.. The Institute encourages all its members to participate in their individual CPD and record their involvement.. At present each member s participation in CPD is voluntary, however participation in CPD will become mandatory by 2012.. Each member s participation in their CPD entitles them to receive credit for their learning.. The IAI accredits all recognised CPD activites as outlined in Table 1.. The IAI promotes the widespread and effective practice of CPD within the archaeological profession, by working in partnership with employers, academic institutions, Government agencies and other relevant bodies.. The IAI CPD Framework supporting lifelong learning.. The IAI CPD framework consists of three pillars, namely.. Thematic modules/ seminars and workshops.. Professional activities (Table 1).. Accreditation and assessment.. 1 Thematic modules/seminars and workshops.. The thematic modules consist of a variety of courses designed to increase the required skills that the archaeologist needs to carry out specific pieces of work or research to a required professional standard (competency) and to add to the existing skills base that the archaeologist possesses prior to attending the course.. The thematic courses are an integral part of a personal continuous development/ educational process that recognises the principles of lifelong learning.. The thematic modules will include collaborative CPD events with other professional institutes/ organisations.. The duration of the courses will vary between half day and full day events to weekend courses.. 2 Professional activities.. Lifelong learning does not only take place within the confines of the lecture theatre or seminar room.. There are other professional development and learning activities that form an important part of any CPD framework.. The main activities include:.. Archaeological research.. Publication (at a recognised level).. Involvement with professional institutes (i.. e.. committee work).. Direct involvement with the IAI CPD framework (i.. acting as a course trainer or assessor).. Structured reading and learning activities.. Participation in IAI organised field trips.. Attendance and direct involvement in recognised national and international conferences that deal with archaeological issues or issues relevant to archaeological concerns.. 3 Accreditation and Assessment.. Accreditation under the IAI framework consists of.. Internal IAI accreditation.. External accreditation.. The internal IAI accreditation is under the direct control and governance of the IAI membership through the activities of the Board.. The IAI credit system mimics  ...   I need ?.. Each member is required to accumulate a minimum of fifty credits over a two year period, or an average of twenty five credits per year.. The two year averaging period allows that any shortfall can be compensated for in the succeeding year.. Approved CPD activities and their related credit values.. This list of approved CPD activities and related credit values may be expanded from time to time at the discretion of the Board.. The Board shall assign credit values for specific CPD activities as such activities are brought to the attention of the Board.. There are courses available concerning both the technical archaeological skills and generic professional skills which form part of an archaeologists continuing professional development.. The Board can only assign a credit value based upon an assessment of the syllabus and course provision.. Maintaining records.. It is the responsibility of the individual IAI member to maintain a verifiable record of CPD activities.. Members will be responsible for making a return to the IAI office of the events they have attended during the two year period, so that they can be duly credited.. Attendance lists will be circulated at all appropriate accredited events organised by the IAI.. The attendance list should be signed by attendees.. These lists will be forwarded to the IAI office for processing and your credits shall be entered onto a central database.. The attendee s signature on the attendance list ensures their attendance is recorded.. Upon completion of the CPD courses, each participant will receive a certificate verifying their attendance, duration of the course, location of the course and credits associated with the course.. Each certificate bears an individual identifier code which can be forwarded to the Institute and recorded on a central database.. In the case of events that are external to the IAI CPD programme, such as events that individual archaeologists attend of their own interest, a copy of the syllabus outlining the objective and learning outcomes of the course should be forwarded to the IAI office with evidence of attendance (e.. g.. receipt, or IAI downloaded form for completion by coarse organiser with his/her relevant contact details).. In such cases the IAI can assess the course and assign an appropriate credit points rating, if appropriate.. Members are encouraged to track their CPD credits personally and can download a blank credit record sheet.. IAI members have the right to access their personal CPD credit records at the IAI office, prior to arranging an appointment with the administrative staff.. In the future it is intended that the website shall be used to facilitate the members in recording and accessing their personal credit records.. The Institute seeks comments and suggestions from members on the CPD programme as these are deemed instrumental regarding the constant improvement of CPD in Irish archaeology.. An updated list of approved CPD activities and their related credit values will be maintained on the Institutes website for the benefit of the members.. Course Calendars.. Download the course calendar for the current year:.. The course calendar for 2011 has now been finalised and can be downloaded.. Course calendars from previous years:.. CPD Course Calendar 2010.. CPD Course Calendar 2009.. CPD Course Calendar 2006.. Opportunities for course providers.. As part of the CPD programme the IAI shall seek to identify suitable course trainers.. Course trainers shall include members and corporate members of the IAI, recognised higher education institutes, specialist industry/ business training bodies, other professional bodies and relevant state agencies, public authorities and non-governmental organisations.. The IAI is committed to the constant expansion of its links with potential course trainers from across the archaeological profession..
