Our 9-week class The Fundamentals of Health Sciences Research Data Management will be held again from February 12 to April 12, 2024! We are currently accepting applications for those who would like to enroll in the class as well as for those who would like to serve in the role of community expert for this class. Please apply from the link below by January 14.
This class is designed to improve learners’ knowledge and skills in research data management. Throughout the course, learners will read foundational texts, discuss challenges and solutions to RDM issues, complete assignments that will help grow their understanding, conduct a data interview with a researcher, and prepare a presentation on a concept in RDM. Weekly modules will cover a variety of topics, including the research data lifecycle, data management plans, reproducibility, data storage and security, description and documentation, repositories and data sharing, and more.
This course is structured to provide learners with an opportunity to interact with each other, with course facilitators, and with community experts in research data management to build confidence in discussing RDM issues and to contribute to the growing community of information professionals with expertise in this area. Community experts will help by interacting with learners to provide feedback on their work in the course.
This class requires an application and selection process, so if you are interested in applying for this course as either a learner or a community expert, please see the course page:
