Digital Scholarship 101: Managing Your Data

Thursday, 1/19, 1:00 pm-2:30 pm

Data, what is it, how and why is it managed, and why do granting agencies care? In this workshop we will talk about what counts as “data” from various definitions, including the National Endowment for the Humanities. Participants will go over the ethical concerns and considerations covered and answered by a data management plan, as well as the practical skills needed in developing and writing a data management plan. This workshop will cover topics such as collection and storage, consent agreements, and contingencies for sensitive information and data. At the end of the workshop, participants will understand how data management plans can help protect and archive their research, help with the IRB process, and contribute significantly to the sustainability of their project.

A Zoom link will be emailed on hour before the workshop.

Digital Scholarship 101: Workshop Series
This series of workshops helps scholars avoid outdated projects, unpreserved knowledge, uncredited labor, and privacy or consent issues by emphasizing process in the project life cycle. Workshop participants learn how to conceptualize the life cycle of a project using human-centered design and backwards modelling when planning their projects to better understand how to version, archive, and preserve their research projects. Throughout the series, thematic questions around sustainability, preservation, accessibility, privacy, consent, grant requirements, and teaching with research will be examined. We encourage you to come with a project in mind and bring materials if available, but is not required to attend.
