Carlson, J., Johnston, L., Westra, B., & Nichols, M. (2013, January). Developing an understanding of data management education: A report from the data information literacy project. Paper presented at the 8th International Digital Curation Conference, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
|This presentation describes the early results from the Data Information Literacy (DIL) project designed to identify the educational needs of graduate students across a variety of science disciplines and respond with effective educational interventions to meet those needs. Interviews of the students and faculty members present a detailed snapshot of graduate student needs in data management education. Our findings from the project interviews are analyzed here, with a preview of the five proposed and ongoing training approaches as of January, 2013.
A video of the presentation, captured by the event organizers, is available here.
