The RDS department actively engages in instruction by crafting and delivering workshops, one-shot class presentations, and other training sessions. We cover many data tools, applications, and data management topics in order to foster data literacy proficiency and advance open science practices. 

Our instructional sessions can include hands-on activities tailored to specific disciplines contingent on allocated time and expected learning outcomes. Contact us to explore potential topics of interest and discuss custom content planning based on your classes’ and labs' needs, modality, and scheduling.
