Learn how to curate data and teach online through upcoming courses

Emory Report | Dec. 11, 2014

The Emory Center for Digital Scholarship has two offerings in January for managing data and teaching online.

A Data Curation Workshop will be held Jan. 12, co-sponsored with the Institute for Quantitative Theory & Methods. It will teach participants practical strategies for data curation and management.

Led by instructors from the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), the one-day workshop will show participants how to plan for, review, assess and clean data, including confidential and restricted data.

Knowledge about archiving data to comply with federal funding agency mandates and requirements from journals and publishers is promised.

No prior data experience is required. Confirmation of attendance in the session will be sent by Friday, Dec. 19.

For more information, contact Jennifer Doty, research data librarian.

Apply for Foundations of Online Teaching by Monday, Jan. 5, and gain first-hand experience in a completely digital learning environment.

The eight-week course, which runs Jan. 19 through March 22, is designed for professionals and educators to research and acquire the knowledge and skills to develop and facilitate a quality online or blended course. Appropriate for all disciplines, the course includes both synchronous and asynchronous components.

Upon completion, participants will have:

  • proficiency in planning, organizing and designing online course content
  • effective methods for managing an online course
  • skills to collaborate with others in the digital learning environment
  • assess blended or online course using a variety of types
  • a basis to apply learning and instructional design theories to engage students in a blended or online course
  • ability to use various collaboration methods and technological tools
  • knowledge to connect concepts such as copyright, accessibility and open educational resources to the digital learning environment

Participants will also be working on course development for online/blended environments, including a syllabus and a course design plan, and they will build a bibliography that is shared with past participants for a collective and comprehensive resource center.
