Train-the-Trainer RDM Bootcamp - Day 2

The SSHOC project and DARIAH-ERIC announce an interactive bootcamp aimed at all academics and practitioners involved in delivering Research Data Management training. This bootcamp takes place over 2 non-consecutive half-days, with a break in between to allow for independent study.


Participants will receive expert training from leading practitioners and trainers in the field of Research Data Management, and will have the opportunity to specialise in a key area of interest and also to receive peer feedback on an assignment to be completed between sessions. The second session will conclude with a plenary session focusing on Research Data Management didactics.

Course Structure

Day 1 will introduce three topics from which participants can then choose a specialisation:

  • Planning to meet the costs of managing research data to be FAIR
  • GDPR and Ethical issues in working with social media data,
  • Dealing with third-party data coming from Cultural Heritage institutions (galleries, museums, libraries, archives)

Participants will receive a ‘homework assignment’ in their chosen subject area, to be completed ready for discussion during Day 2.

Please note: Participation is required on both days.

Registered participants will then receive information about how to attend the sessions by once they register.

Program of Day 2

On Day 2 participants will discuss their completed assignments and attend a plenary session on didactics.


Kerstin Helbig (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin)

The bootcamp will finish with a session on didactics. In this session, Kerstin Helbig (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany) will take participants through the seven steps of concept development. Trainers can apply these steps to develop and improve their training and to maximize their training success
