This module is a part of the introductory online course “Data Steward Training”. In this course learners will develop the skills and gain knowledge on how to be a successful data steward. 

By the end of this module, learners will:

  • Understand the role of pedagogy and learning activities to teach effectively. 

  • Be able to critically assess the reasons for organising training activities.  

  • Be able to create training which meets their aims and the needs of their learners.

This module is suitable for data stewards and trainers seeking introductory learning material. It will take on average one hour to complete the module. 

The materials include a video presentation, a full video transcript, a PowerPoint presentation and various learning activities and resources to support learning.   

This learning material has been developed in collaboration with the FAIRsFAIR and EOSC Synergy projects. The majority of the material has been used in previous online data steward instructor training workshops in 2020 and 2021. 

The Data Steward Training course contains a total of 5 modules, each of which has been uploaded to Zenodo separately. Please see the related identifiers for the DOI's for each module. Please note: that module 4 (Data Management Plans) has been re-used and was originally published as module 8 of the EOSC synergy course: Bringing synergy to better data management and research in Europe -
