Train-the-Trainer Workshop on RDM“ is an English adaptation of the German workshop “Train-the-Trainer zum Forschungsdatenmanagement” (NRW). The workshop will be held all day, virtually and in English.

„Train-the-Trainer Workshop on RDM“ introduces participants to the fundamentals of RDM and prepares them to teach those in their field of work or at their institution. In addition to teaching methods and input for course development, the workshop covers topics such as research data policies, data management plans, documentation and metadata, storage and long-term archiving as well as legal aspects. The units include a variety of practical exercises, introducing participants to different tools and methods while applying the unit’s RDM-input immediately.

The course will be held by Katarzyna Biernacka (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) in cooperation with Landesinitiative fdm.nrw. The workshop concept has been developed as part of the BMBF-funded project FDMentor and is continuously updated.

Target Group

Employees working at libraries, IT-centres and research support centres of universities and other institutions of higher education, who (want to) offer RDM-trainings in English and English-speaking as well as researchers who act as multipliers of RDM in their respective research institutes.
