September 14, 2017 – The Portage Research Data Management Training Expert Group (TEG) has released an online request tool for research data management (RDM) training. The bilingual form is available to those who are organizing RDM training on Canadian academic campuses and would like assistance developing training and guidance materials in all areas of RDM. In responding to requests for training assistance, TEG will draw upon the wealth of knowledge and expertise of the Portage network to assist applicants in developing educational materials and programs.
The wider academic community is also invited to submit RDM training suggestions through this form. In response, TEG will share these requests with local contacts and coordinate RDM training opportunities that respond to the request.
