Managing Data @ Melbourne

Managing Data@ Melbourne is the University’s new research data management training program. It consists of six short modules, which outline the fundamental practices of good data management. The Managing Data @Melbourne program targets Graduate Researchers (PhD, other doctorates, MPhil and masters by research) and aims to assist them to develop the skills they need to draft a research data management plan. The program also links to a new tool DMP Melbourne (an online data management planning tool)

The Managing Data@ Melbourne program is accessed via a new webpage:

This page is linked on various locations: Researcher@Library pages, Workshops & Tours, and will be added to Doing Data Better site soon.

The program itself sits within an LMS Community.

Learning Environments recently enrolled all current GR candidates (5,000+), and to manage the rolling enrolments will enrol new GRs on a weekly basis.

While our target audience is GRs, all UoM students and staff may enrol in the Managing Data @Melbourne LMS Community. Additionally, the Vice-Chancellor has allowed us to release the program under Creative Commons, so people external to the university will be able can request access to the LMS Community.
