What would happen to your research data if your lab exploded, or your laptop was stolen, or your cloud storage account was hacked? How could you prevent data loss in these situations?

Managing your data effectively is vital to help you do this.

This workshop will introduce the basic principles of Research Data Management (RDM) and how they are relevant throughout the research life cycle.

Intended for those who are new to RDM, this course will firstly explain what RDM is, and then go on to cover basic data back-up and storage options, file sharing tools, and strategies for organising your data, as well as providing guidance on managing personal or sensitive data. You will also learn about the range of support services available to you within the University for managing your data.

If you already have a basic understanding of RDM then the advanced course is probably more appropriate for you to attend.

 

Please bring your own internet-enabled device to this session.

 

This course is designed for all STEM graduate students. Other researchers are welcome.

 

Aims of the session

  • Develop effective research data management skills
  • Increase awareness of challenges around data management
  • Improve awareness of significance of data management in context of reproducibility and research sharing
  • Raise awareness of University data support services for researchers
