Intended Audiences

The intended audience for any of the workshops offered in the Pathways to Research Data Management series are:

  • Faculty
  • Graduate Students
  • Undergraduate Students
  • UVic Staff

These workshops were originally designed for grad students with little to no experience with research data management, however they are appropriate for a general audience.

For workshops involving the use of software or online tools, no prior knowledge is required.
