Course Description

When you use someone else's data, how do you know they collected it accurately? How do you ensure the quality of your own data? The way that data is organized and documented can help or hinder future use, even your own! This session of the Data Management Series will help you plan how to organize your data, track versions, create metadata, and document your data's life-cycle.

Flipped classroom: before attending, participants will watch a six minute video on data documentation, organization, and metadata so that in class, we can focus on hands-on participation and activities. Participants that attend all five data management sessions will receive a Certificate for their UMN training records. See more information on our course website at http://z.umn.edu/datamgmt14. Audience: Graduate students currently enrolled at the UMN.
