Professional Skill Workshops for Graduate Students - Introduction to Data Management

Professional Skill Workshops for Graduate Students - Introduction to Data Management

Wednesday October 17, 2012
9:00 am - noon
Room 252 ML

Cost: FREE

Space is limited.  Please register here.

Course description:

Research data are the building blocks of knowledge and understanding of the world around us.  As graduate students, data will likely be an important part of your research endeavour, whether you collect it yourself or reuse existing data.  Increasingly granting institutions such as SSHRC, CIHR and NSERC will require you to have a Data Management Plan in place as part of your grant application.

The workshop will begin by examining what we mean by research data management, why it is important to your work as a graduate student and how research data management is becoming an essential professional skill.  We will then introduce you to tools and exercises that will familiarise you with the process of creating a data management plan and equip you with on-line tutorials that you can use to further your knowledge at your own pace.

This course was offered during the winter term in 2012 and the most frequent comment we heard from participants was: “We wish you had given this early in the fall term.”
