Template Research Data Management workshop for STEM researchers

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

These materials are designed as a template for an introductory Research Data Management workshop for STEM postgraduate students and Early Career Researchers. The workshop is interactive and is designed to be run for 2-3 hours depending on which sections of the workshop are delivered. As it is a template workshop there is a lot of material to cover all disciplines, it is unlikely that all sections would be of interest to any one group of researchers. The sections are:
Backup and file sharing
How to organise your data well
Data Tools
Personal and sensitive data
Data sharing
Data Management Plans

The workshop works best when adapted for a particular discipline and with a maximum of 30 participants. This workshop was developed for the Data Champions programme at the University of Cambridge and is an adaptation of workshops which are run on a regular basis for PhD students and Postdoctoral researchers. If you would like any more information please email [email protected] and we would be happy to answer any questions that you have.
