Discover how data should be managed in your business
Data transforms the way we live and work, so it’s becoming increasingly important that it’s stored and organised correctly. On this course, you’ll learn how to develop and deliver effective data management services to improve research in your organisation.
You’ll discover common research support services, how to create data management plans, and how to develop your own research data management roadmap.
Learn from experts in the field from the internationally-recognised Digital Curation Centre and Research Data Netherlands and build your confidence in supporting researchers and preserving data.
This course is for individuals that support researchers to manage and share their data, including librarians, IT and information specialists, data stewards, and research office staff.
By the end of the course, you'll be able to...
- Develop confidence among research support professionals in designing, developing and reviewing institutional RDM services
- Identify the complexities of setting up new service(s) through practical tips, helpful use cases, interactive models, (collaborative) exercises and above all through having the opportunity to learn from experts in the field
- Develop and build a community that will collectively support each other in the provision of services to support and encourage researchers in data management and sharing best practice, and through this spur innovation and growth
- Engage with RDNL (NL) and DCC (UK), to provide learners with guidance and training of international remit that can be applied in various contexts, crossing national borders and industries
Venkat originally was a biologist, and was also involved in a repository and gained expertise in RDM. He took that knowledge to the DCC to train and advocate best practice across research subjects.
