In order to effectively manage research data, both researchers and professional support staff need to develop and enhance new skills. Provision of training to facilitate this is therefore an essential component of any institutional data management infrastructure. The JISC-funded ‘Open Exeter’ and ‘Research360’ projects have developed and delivered a range of interactive training workshops aimed at enabling both postgraduate and academic researchers to understand relevant challenges, risks and requirements and equipping them with the necessary skills to facilitate best practice in research data management. In this half day workshop, a range of exercises that have been successfully used in data management training courses will be presented. Workshop delegates will then have an opportunity to complete each exercise. Participants will benefit from experiencing an interactive managing research data training event from the perspective of researchers and support staff and will learn tools and exemplar exercises that they can subsequently incorporate into their own training provision.
