I'm very happy to be participating in this BoF as part of RDA Plenary 08
and I look forward to seeing you there! My hope for this session is that as
a community we can identify some discrete areas of action that can
strengthen research data management (RDM) and data information literacy
(DIL) training at a global level.
As we know, there are already a number of resources available for RDM
training (running list available here, please add to it!
and that there is some variation in what these educational opportunities do
), whom they address, and what should be covered (suggestions captured on
Questions that we might consider during this BoF discussion could include:
1) What gaps exist for which constituencies?
2) Should there be a standard for what topics are included in RDM/DIL
training? What would that look like?
3) What are the experienced challenges in delivering RDM training? What are
...and I'm sure there are many others. I invite you to contribute yours to
In that spirit of discussion and community action, my first suggestion
though, is that we consider amending the agenda to decrease the time spent
on presentations and increase the time we spend talking with each other to
figure out which areas a possible working group would interested in
effectively working on, together.
What do you think?
