The workshop will lead participants through the process of understanding data management and curation core competencies, conducting environmental scans to determine needs at their own institutions, and translating those needs into the development of an instructional program. By the end of the workshop, participants will have gained strategies and confidence in their ability to implement their own data information literacy program.
The workshop will consist of a variety of activities, including presentations, discussions, and hands-on activities. Participants work through scenario-based case studies of data management and curation challenges faced by actual research groups.
