Because good research needs good data

Developing RDM training for library IT & research office staff

Sarah Jones | 03 July 2013

The DCC is collaborating with a number of Jisc MRD projects to run a workshop on developing RDM training materials for research support staff.

The event will take place at the University of East London on 16th July.

Institutions running, setting up or planning RDM support services have a need to identify and train staff in appropriate roles. Several JISC-funded projects have developed training materials for library, IT and research office staff that complement the many resources developed by the Digital Curation Centre. But what training material exists, and how can it be used effectively?

Staff from the TraD (UEL), ADMIRe (Nottingham) and RoaDMaP (Leeds) projects, together with the DCC, are hosting an event to explore these issues. The workshop will offer an overview of existing training materials, give you some hands-on practice using training resources, and hear from the Jisc MRD projects about addressing the training needs of library, IT and research office staff.

You will find this event useful if you are planning to develop a support service for managing research data, or already undertaking this work. And the roundtable will give us all a chance to share good practice and any lessons learned.

So join us in Stratford, East London, on 16 July!
