    Collaborative meeting notes:
    After two successful meetings using a flipped format of pre-recorded presentations combined with synchronous question and project development sessions that allowed time for community members to add and enrich their own experiences, we want to use this plenary to truly advance the work of the ETHRD-IG focus groups by providing better opportunities for community contributions.
    After a short introductory presentation, we will invite the community to actively advance our work on metadata schemes and learning resources for training. The ETHRD-IG, VP18 session will be a working session in which we create a scaffolded space for the community to add their own ideas and experiences to our draft outputs on metadata schema, extended documentation, and learning resource portal catalog for training materials on handling research data.

    Meeting objectives
    The objective of this meeting is to gather practitioners involved in education and training on handling research data, from Data Science and Data Stewardship to Research Data Management, to actively advance current community initiatives, focusing on how they might benefit from coordination and cooperation.
    Contributing to the RDA theme “Building the social and technical bridges to enable open sharing and re-use of data”, the ETHRD IG meeting focuses on the importance of training and education in promoting the goals of global participation in, barrier reduction for, and equitable access to data interchanges. By advancing the discovery, access, and reusability of education and training resources for RDM, more people can easily take advantage of available resources, or share available resources, to reduce the burden of education and training as an aid to increased participation and representation in the interchange of data. This meeting addresses the importance of community efforts, joint initiatives, and crossing (virtual) borders to optimise the development and delivery of education and training on handling research data, as a joint effort to stimulate Open Research.  

    Discovering existing education and training materials that successfully employ innovative or traditional pedagogy and andragogy, and that are use cases of the open sharing and reusing of both training materials and its underlying data

    Jointly identifying materials in ways that assist in assessing appropriateness of 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 background, and overcoming boundaries of countries and disciplines
