    Collaborative session notes:…
    Preferred notes:

    Starting with a review of the last ten years of the ETHRD-IG, its developments and outputs, we would like to shift the focus to andragogy. We invite the community to share their projects and to test new methods on delivering RDM to students and researchers in ways that respect and incorporate participants’ professional experiences. These will act as a springboard for developing and coalescing around community-derived next-stage activities necessary for advancing the work of the education and training community in particular, and the data community as a whole. The ETHRD-IG, P20 session will be a knowledge exchange and idea-generating session in which we create a welcoming space for the community to add their own ideas and experiences whilst making new connections with an engaged audience to sustain and benefit the community.

    Avoid conflict with the following group (1)
    Professionalising Data Stewardship IG

    Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group
    The ETHRD IG provides a venue for exchanging information about existing developments and initiatives related to education and training on research data handling. Providing necessary education and training is critical to uncovering the benefits of worldwide Open Data activities, realising the potential of data-driven research, and increasing the efficiency and impact of all modes of research, to ultimately improve our world.
    In this session we will be building upon past work of the IG to continue work within the current context of the data professional education environment and contribute to the work of the IG in ways that will benefit existing initiatives and uncover new initiatives, ripe for synergistic contributions. The goal is to address data science and research data handling education and training by facilitating information exchange and cooperation between efforts around the world that are supporting the education of data professionals and training of those handling research data.

    Meeting objectives
    The objective of the meeting is to bring together trainers involved in the delivery of research data management to researchers and students to share the possibilities of effective andragogical strategies – i.e. adult training approaches that build on real life experience – in this area. Looking back at the last ten years of the ETHRD-IG in the spirit of the Plenary theme, ‘A Decade of Data’, we would like to look at recent developments and talk about current solutions and methods in adult education in order to discuss how to drive cultural change in data training and education, to support academics and prepare them for the labour market.
     We can achieve this together through:

    Discovering existing education and training materials that successfully employ innovative or traditional andragogy, and that demonstrate the value  of  open sharing and reuse of training materials and their underlying data;

    Jointly identifying materials in ways that assist in assessing fitness for use, e.g., audience, goals, required competencies, language. Making this a joint, global effort will help the community to use training to effectively address challenges, and unite disciplines and countries;

    Creating and enriching materials so that they can be reused, connected to each other, and understood in context to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of engaging citizens, students and researchers from diverse backgrounds, and overcoming boundaries of countries and disciplines.
