Re: [rda-edu-ig] Draft Agenda - IG on Education and Training on Handling Research Data (IG-ETRD) meeting at RDA5 10 March 2015, San Diego

29 Jan 2015

Dear IG-ETRD members,
We have two proposals for presentation and discussion topics at the next
IG-ETRD meeting - see draft Agenda below.
- Defining Data Scientist Competence Profile and Data Science Body of
Knowledge, and
- Educational and training resources on Data Science and supporting
infrastructure
Discussion on these topics on the list is welcome. I will post some our
discovered materials and papers and will approach potential contributors.
I hope that these two items will also constitute the IG work plan and
discussion for the next few meetings.
Any contribution and/or related short presentation would be appreciated.
Yuri

    Dear Yuri,
    Thank you for the suggestion, and I hope you're keeping well.
    I'm worried that the focus still appears to be on data science and data scientists. The discussions that we have had at the two previous RDA plenaries made it clear that we need to consider training/skills/career development issues in the broader context of all those with an interest in RDM - i.e. data managers, data librarians/curators and researchers themselves, not just data scientists. I thought we had firmly agreed to follow that approach. Perhaps I've misunderstood something in your message, but we need to be careful in our use of terminology if we are to reflect what we talked about in Dublin and Amsterdam.
    Best wishes,
    Stéphane
