ABE 023

Are you looking for ways to best approach your research data management, but didn’t get a spot in the Research Data Management 101 course? In that case the RDM module of the Open Science MOOC might be just the source of knowledge you’re looking for (more information on how to access this below). Also ABE023 won't be held next semester. We are looking for a replacement for our data steward. 

This module is by no means a replacement for the RDM101 course, but it will provide you with a generic introduction to research data management. For more TU Delft specific information visit the TU Delft RDM website.

How to access the Open Science MOOC RDM module:
· Follow this link (this is the last version run in May 2022)
· Click on ‘View Course materials’.
· First time users: register / already registered in EdX: sign in.
· Go to Week 2 of the module ‘Research Data Management’
· You will be able to watch the videos and complete quizzes, but you can’t upload/submit assignments at this point.
· You can explore all the materials of any module if you’re interested. 

Course description RDM 

Research Data Management (RDM) is an important research skill that concerns about careful handling and organizing all types of research materials. It is part of the professional competences that you can assess, identify, and resolve relevant data management issues in research. In addition, RDM is also closely related to other components in Open Science, such as Open Access publishing, research ethics, research integrity and so on. 

Research data in the field of architecture and built environment is diverse in terms of the type (content wise) and the format (digital, non-digital). Managing and publishing research data in this field is still at an early stage and requires more awareness and advocacy from the research community. This course is the starting point to understand the disciplinary insights regarding data management and provides guidance to start managing the research data. 

Learning objectives 

After following the course, the participants are expected to have a good understanding on:

- Role of data management in research
- Lifecycle of research data management, including important issues at each stage
- Data management plan (DMP)
- Data publishing and archiving
- General ethical issues in doing research in architecture and the built environment
- General sensitivity and privacy concerns in research in architecture and the built environment

Teaching Method

Short lecture, in-class demo, exercise and discussion, assignment
