Beyond the research data management (RDM) institutional strategy, tri-agency and institutional policies and directives, and supporting various RDM tools, an important aspect of RDM is training members of the research community. Up to now and for good reasons, training has focused on information professionals. However, the time has come to start sharing our knowledge with the research community, including researchers, students, and research office staff. This webinar will present the various ways used by three institutions from the Université du Québec network, what motivated this approach, and what are the next steps for training. We will talk about modes of communication, people’s availability, and ways to reach a very busy audience.
Jonathan Dorey is a research officer in RDM for École nationale d’administration publique (ENAP), Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) and Université TÉLUQ in Montréal. He holds a master and a PhD in information studies from McGill University in addition to being a certified translator. He is a member of the Portage Expert Groups on preservation and data management plans, as well as on the preservation committee of BCI’s RDM working group.
The webinar will be presented in English and recorded. Engagement during the webinar in both official languages is welcomed. Previous webinar recordings are available on the CARL YouTube Channel. Links to the recordings and slides can also be found on Portage Training Resources.
