Upcoming workshop at METRO:
Teaching Research Data Management and Reproducibility: Ways to Engage Your Community in Research Stewardship
By understanding researchers’ workflows, teaching data management is that much more efficient. In this session, Vicky Steeves (Librarian for Research Data Management and Reproducibility, New York University) will give an introduction to those looking to start offering services around research data management and reproducibility.
Steeves will introduce the concepts, terminology, and best practices of data management and reproducibility from both the perspective of librarians and researchers. Steeves will also demonstrate existing open-source infrastructure and workflows that enable best practices in data management and working more with more reproducibility. Participants will experiment with online tools, engage in discussions, and work on small group activities. Folks walking away from this workshop will have a better idea of how to engage with researchers on these topics, offer more research services, and foster a community of stewardship within their institutions.
-Participants will gain an understanding of some basic concepts in data management and reproducibility.
-Participants will know about available tools that help work towards research reproducibility.
-Participants will understand how to offer and scale services around data management and reproducibility.
-Participants will be able to, at the very least, know what to look up when Googling.
This is an introductory workshop; no prerequisite knowledge or experience is required.
