Data Management Course Enrollment

The Spring Data Management Course has ended. Please feel free to participate in the self-paced modules on your own. The Data management Plan template is available on the Syllabus page for you to download and use.
This short course on data management is designed for graduate students in the engineering disciplines who seek to prepare themselves as “data information literate" scientists in the digital research environment. Detailed videos and writing activities will help you prepare for the specific and long-term needs of managing your research data. Experts in digital curation will describe current sharing expectations of federal funding agencies (like NSF, NIH) and give advice on how to
ethically share and preserve research data for long-term access and reuse.

Students will get out of this course:
  • Seven web-based lessons that you can watch anytime online or download to your device.
  • A Data Management Plan (DMP) template with tips on how to complete each section. Your completed DMP can be used in grant applications or put into practice as a protocol for handling data individually or within your research group or lab.
  • Feedback and consultation on your completed DMP by research data curators in your field.  

Participants may join at anytime. Upon registering, you will receive a time-table and reminder emails for completing the course. If you have any questions please contact the instructors.
