Learn Data Management through Pokémon! Online
Research data management education provides guidance on how researchers can effectively manage their data to increase the scholarly impact from their research, comply with funder mandates, and take control of their research data! Did you know that Pokémon, a media franchise from Japan which features video games, movies, anime, manga, toys, and other creations, is a great way to learn data management? In this workshop, we will learn data management principles of filenaming, metadata, and documentation through a lens of hands-on activities involving Pokémon. Prior experience with Pokémon is not required for this workshop, but participants should be prepared to take part in several hands-on activities with other workshop attendees. While not required, attendees will benefit from having access to paper, pens, a digital drawing platform such as Paint, and a webcam (although it will be optional to use the webcam), as some of the activities will involve drawing in a collaborative environment.
