INTRODUCTION TO RECORDS AND INFORMATION MANAGEMENT 
<http://www.plc.fis.utoronto.ca/coursedescription.asp?courseid=78>
8 weeks
September 10 - October 29
Instructor: Paul Fisher

In this course you will master the fundamentals of records and 
information management. The course covers the major components in 
managing the internal information of an organization and will provide an 
understanding of what is involved in developing a records management 
program for both paper and electronic records.

The course is designed to be very practical so that students learn the 
concepts, see how the concepts are applied, and then use them in 
real-life situations.

"I can now perform my job with much more confidence and hopefully pass 
this knowledge on to my less experienced co-workers. I also have learned 
that it can be a stepping stone for me, as I have a new attitude in my 
professional occupation"

"There were specific records management issues that I was struggling 
with at work and I was able to use those examples in my assignments and 
gain valuable feedback from the instructor that I can apply directly to 
those issues. Gained a great peer contact through my partnering 
assignment as well. We've kept in contact even after the assignments 
have been completed. It's nice that I was partnered with someone in my 
geographic area who is in the same line of work as me"
