Workshop 7

Comparing Approaches to Curriculum Development for Research Data Handling (Full Day)

09.30-17.30

Free of charge

Organisers: Simon Hodson, CODATA, Laura Molloy, University of Oxford, Steve Brewer, EDISON Project & Christopher Jung, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

Developing new frameworks for data-related skills and competencies is regarded as a high priority to respond to the challenges of the ‘Data Revolution’.  This workshop will provide a forum for discussion and to build connections between current initiatives and approaches to developing curricula for education and training for research data handling, addressing the needs of researchers and other data-related roles.  A variety of current approaches to curriculum development will be represented and we strongly welcome input to the workshop from others with interests in this area.

This free workshop is kindly supported by the EDISON project It is organised by the EDISON Project, the CODATA-RDA Working Group on Research Data Science Summer Schools and the RDA Interest Group on Education and Training on Handling Research Data

Workshop 8

Supporting and reviewing Data Management Plans (Full Day)

Delegate fee £90

09.00-17.00

Organisers: Sarah Jones, Digital Curation Centre, Amanda Whitmire, DART Project & Stephanie Simms, California Digital Library

The aim of the workshop is to bring together people undertaking work on DMPs to provide an international forum for sharing lessons and expertise. The DART project methodology for developing an evaluation rubric will also be used to in a practical exercise on reviewing DMPs.

Lots of developments are happening in terms of Data Management Plans – new requirements are emerging, there are a growing number of national pilots, and librarians are starting to offer DMP review services. Come to this workshop to hear about what is going on in different contexts and to share details from your work. You will also get the opportunity to learn how to develop an evaluation rubric, based on the lessons of the DART project, to help you review and assess DMPs in your own context.

Worskhop 9

Appraisal, Quality Assurance and Risk Assessment in the Data Continuum (Half Day, am)

09.00-13.30

Free of charge

Organisers: Mark Hedges, Simon Waddington, Department of Digital Humanities, Kings College London & Fabio Corubolo, IPHS, University of Liverpool

PERICLES is a 4 year EU-funded FP7 project aiming at ”Promoting and Enhancing Reuse of Information throughout the Content Lifecycle taking account of Evolving Semantics. Our workshop will present research carried out on the PERICLES project with respect to appraisal and risk assessment within the continuum of the lives of digital objects. We will proceed with group work sessions where the participants will be able to discuss, comment on and apply in a test scenario different aspects of appraisal processes that are relevant for preservation. The final aim of this workshop is to identify parts of appraisal processes that lend themselves to being automated, and to collect useful feedback from the archiving and data management communities for future research and developments plans for appraisal tools, and more generally for the risk assessment and quality assurance as part of the dependency modeling approach we are investigating and suggesting as valuable LTDP approach
