Data Management and Open Educational Resources
In this two part presentation, Michele Gibney, a visiting PhD student in Scholarly Communication, currently in Kosovo as part of a Fulbright award, will cover the separate topics of creating and implementing a data management plan that adheres to funding requirements and identifying, adopting, and adapting open educational resources (OER) for use in the classroom. Data management can be an important element in grant applications as well as being valuable for those without grants who produce data in the course of their research and want or need to share it for increasing dialogue in the field, reproducibility, or citation advantage. Using OER in the classroom can increase student engagement with course material, lead to a higher retention rate, and ensure access to the reading on the first day of classes. An introduction and overview to both of these topics will be covered in the course of this single presentation. Attendees should come away with a solid understanding of websites and tools catering to these topics, which will help them in the future.
