During this session, the Data Management Training (DMT) Working Group (under the auspices of the ESIP Data Stewardship Committee) will share the current status of the following projects and invites anyone interested to get involved. Clearinghouse Project: The Data Management Clearinghouse project proposal was submitted in October 2015 in response to the Request for Proposal (RFP) from U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Community for Data Integration (CDI). CDI awarded funds to the Clearinghouse project for work between June 1st and September 30th, 2016. The Clearinghouse project is focusing efforts on collecting and annotating learning resources and, eventually, training events related to data management for Earth sciences. At the session, the DMT Working Group will demonstrate the web interface to the DMT Clearinghouse which is designed to include search & discovery of learning resources on data management training, a submission form for crowd-sourced additions to the Clearinghouse and an administrative view that will allow reviewers & editors of the Clearinghouse to add or correct any metadata not included at the time of submission for quality control purposes. We will be soliciting feedback on the web interface and functionality of the metadata input forms and the content management system that is being implemented on the ESIP Commons for the Clearinghouse project. Role-Based Data Management Training Topic Development: As part of the development for the Clearinghouse project and the next data management training modules, the DMT Working Group has approached the task of topic development from the point of view of the information needs of different types of people involved with data management, such as data producers, data managers, and data librarians. Consequently, the DMT Working Group is working to understand the categories of users that should be included within the above projects and determine how the content of the Clearinghouse and the training modules could be structured to support the needs. Next Installment of the Training Modules: The current versions of the modules within the "ESIP Data Management for Scientists Short Course" were originally created and published between 2011 and 2013. While the extant 35 modules still provide valuable training information for their respective topics, the DMT Working Group is interested in producing the next set of training modules to address the current and emerging data management training areas. During the session, the DMT Working Group would like to discuss the topics, format and process of creating and/or updating learning resources that have been suggested for the next installment of the training modules, and solicit additional topic suggestions, marketing strategies, and funding opportunities for the next edition.
