PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP - SSHOC Open Science and Research Data Management Train-the-Trainer Bootcamp

The bootcamp aims to aid trainers in finding resources and tools they can re-use in their training activities. The Bootcamp will consist of two two-hour sessions held on two separate days with time in between for participants to work on assignments.

The Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) is a 40-month EU project which will create the SSH area of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). In this project, we want to contribute to a coordinated, pan-European training infrastructure by building and educating a network of SSH trainers involved in Open Science and Research Data Management (RDM) support.

The first part of the bootcamp will focus on the demonstration of existing tools that aid RDM and could be used as hands-on-exercises in training activities. This will be followed by a session on didactics, in which we will cover tips for training development, including the use of more interactive elements, preparations, evaluations and the development of learning objectives. Participants will be encouraged to assess the usefulness of the presented tools for their own target audience, and consider how they could structure their own training activities.

The second day of the bootcamp will focus on training development using what was discussed on Day 1. We will facilitate an interactive session where we discuss how the presented materials and tools can be used in the context of an RDM training. We will examine different training methods, exchange experiences, and discuss how to make training interactive and prepare hands-on-exercises. In the last part of the bootcamp, participants will receive an update on the SSH Training Toolkit. Throughout SSHOC, existing and newly developed training materials have been collected in the Toolkit and we will highlight key training materials that are already available (e.g. materials on for instance GDPR, sensitive data, FAIR and open data).

The event starts on 10th May at 13:00 CEST.
