Online training – Data sharing: How, what and why?

Yesterday I ran an online training session on sharing research data. This session covered:

  • Data sharing policies
  • Benefits of data sharing
  • Data repositories
  • Preparing data for sharing
  • Re-using data

The slides from the session are below. OU staff and students can access a recording of the session on Adobe Connect and anyone can access it on You Tube.

Here are the other sessions we’ll be delivering over the next month:

These sessions will be run using Adobe Connect; joining instructions can be found on the event pages on My Learning Centre, but if in doubt please email us at

If there’s any other training you’d like us to deliver online, feel free to let us know by emailing or commenting below
