I know I’m not the only one struggling with learning data management in a very few minutes of free time a day, though the mandates are upon us, the faculty are asking, and we really need to get to the students before they graduate.

Enter Dorothea Salo’s continuing education class: Introduction to Research Data Management being offered this fall through UW-Madison SLIS. It will be ten weeks, asynchronous, and the price tag is respectable without being outrageous.

I’m not sure how much continuing ed/professional development funds I’m getting for this next school year but I am going to do my best to find the money to take this class.

Go sign up. Right now. Really.  This will be a good class and, considering some other people I know who are also looking at taking this, should have really great conversations in the student forums.  Just leave me one spot.

Update: If you have questions, please feel free to contact Dorothea at herlastname@wisc.edu
