I am excited to announce a half-day workshop at IDCC17 on Educating Information Professionals and Researchers in Research Data Management.
Robin Rice will provide an update on MANTRA and RDM efforts at the University of Edinburgh, reflect on her experience with the Coursera MOOC, and discuss how this tool might be enhanced for librarians and especially researchers.
William Kilbride will talk about the DPC’s “Getting Started” and “Making Progress” workshop series and discuss how fundamental preservation concepts are essential to RDM plans and training and lead the panel in a discussion of where RDM education is, how far it has come, and where it needs to go.
These presentations will provide the audience with a starting point for breakout sessions. Breakout groups will discuss questions that may include but are not limited to:
