Effective data management is a critical skill for researchers and an essential part of research training for our graduate researchers.
Managing Data @Melbourne is a new online program that has been developed for University of Melbourne graduate researchers to support them in building essential data management skills. Reflecting the Australian Code for the Conduct of Responsible Research and the University’s Management of Research Data and Records Policy, its six short modules outline the fundamental practices of good data management and guide participants through the steps of drafting an online data management plan that they can share with their supervisors via a new online tool, DMP Melbourne.
Managing Data @Melbourne features 13 new short video interviews with Pro Vice-Chancellor (Graduate & International Research) Professor Dick Strugnell and a range of University of Melbourne early career researchers and graduate researchers, including the 2016 Three Minute Thesis (3MT) winners.
The program has been set up as a Learning Management System (LMS) Community and all current graduate researchers have been enrolled. Staff and other students will need to enrol in Managing Data @Melbourne via the LMS.
We invite you to preview the program ahead of our strategic marketing and communication campaign to graduate researchers starting in Week 3.
