Data Curation Roundtable Brownbag

The theme of this week’s brownbag is Data Curation Education.  What courses in Data Curation are being taught here and at our peer institutions?  What courses should be taught?  What concepts, skills and tools do students need to learn?  What is the role of internships and practical placements in Data Curation education?

Data curation is the ongoing management, description, and organization of data to enable sharing, access, preservation and use of data throughout its life cycle. The curation of research data from science and scholarship presents particular challenges and opportunities. The Data Curation Roundtable is a regular, informal event—a time and place to talk about our own projects related to data curation (in any stage of development from brainstorms to ongoing), interesting projects happening in other places, things we have or want to read, data curation education, data governance and policy, and big picture brainstorming and discussion.

Please feel free to bring your lunch; snacks and beverages will also be provided by CIRSS. All are welcome, including students in any programs and faculty, students, and researchers from across the University. Please send any suggestions for discussion topics to Karen Wickett.
