Data Management Offboarding: Essential Steps for a Smooth Transition In-Person

This class is part of the Research Data Management Seminar Series

Research Data Management is essential for responsible research and provides an opportunity for researchers to create a plan ensuring data will be organized and shared with other researchers, or archived for long term preservation.

When employees leave, they take their skills and institutional knowledge with them. It is important to record essential informative information related to projects and datasets to ensure the success of future users.

This training session will present a new checklist designed to guide the knowledge transfer process. We will provide an overview of the various elements that should be addressed during employee offboarding from a research lab.

Through hands-on activities, participants will engage with the checklists to review and understand the core tools available and foundational data management processes that should be included when offboarding an employee. The key take-away from this session will be how to incorporate the checklists within your individual lab.

Audience: Faculty, Staff, Lab Managers.
