This presentation, Teaching Data Management to Health Science, Science & Engineering Students, was presented at the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (AAHSL) Annual Meeting educational program “What's Happening Really: Digital Research Support, and other Hot Topics”, on Nov. 5, 2011.

The Lamar Soutter Library at UMASS Medical School and the Gordon Library at Worcester Polytechnic Institute have collaborated to develop frameworks for a data management curriculum targeted for health science, science and technology research students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. These curriculum frameworks include lesson plans for a series of teaching modules and research case scenarios that allow flexibility for teaching students at different levels in diverse science disciplines.
