How to make the most of the Plenary
Questions and Meet & Greet
Throughout the session, we will also have several current RDA members introduce themselves and talk a bit about their RDA experiences - the groups they belong to, what they like about RDA, what they find challenging, etc. You can then speak to them individually towards the end of the session.
Updated slides from the session are here. Apologies again for the session having to be so short!
Additional information on RDA:
There is a "primer" containing some introductory information on the Research Data Alliance, with pointers to further information on the RDA Web site
For a personal perspective on engaging with RDA, please have a look at the Blog post from Tomasz Miksa: "From A “Newbie” To An “Expert” In Less Than Two Years - How To Engage In The RDA Activities?"
If you have any suggestions on what we should change or what we should include in future RDA for Newcomers sessions, please contact stefanie.kethers[at]ardc.edu.au.
