This year there will be no face-to-face CODATA/RDA Summer School in Trieste in 2020.

While this cancellation is disappointing, it allows a new opportunity - a virtual CODATA/RDA School of Research Data Science alumni event.

We invite all of our past students to join us online for a review, update and training strategies for each of the curriculum sections that were covered during our previous schools. Our goal is to make our alumni more confident in sharing their learning and to train others.

Students will be provided with a preparatory reading list in the topics to remind themselves of what they had previously learnt. Over the period of two weeks, students will be able to attend a virtual session (1-2 hours a day) on each of the individual topics taught with a short review, new topics or updates since their last school, and strategies for instructing in this curriculum area (preparation, key teaching points, how to arrange the hands-on sessions, etc.).

These sessions will provide the alumni the chance to reacquaint themselves with the materials and with their colleagues.
