Incremental seminar: ‘Managing Performance Data and Documentation’

February 22, 2011

As readers of this blog will already know, we held a seminar at University of Glasgow entitled, ‘Managing Performance Data and Documentation’, for researchers and practitioner-researchers in live art and performance of all types, to discuss how they make and store their data and documentation, and to hear our range of speakers.

In the morning session, we heard from Dr Dee Heddon, artist and researcher; Dr Barry Smith, creator of the Live Art Archives and ex-Professor of Performance at Nottingham Trent; Stephen Gray of our fellow JISC Managing Research Data project, CAiRO (Curating Artistic Research Outputs); and theatre maker Adrian Howells.  We then had a panel discussion, followed by lunch.

In the afternoon, various members of University of Glasgow staff presented on support available to researchers in the field, and on points for researchers to remember when putting together a bid for funding.  Speakers included a University Resource Development Officer, an IT officer, a technical developer with funding bid experience and advice about the University’s Arts Lab and other available arts-related support.

Jackie Wickham of the Repositories Support Project was one of our delegates, who wrote a useful short blog post about the day from a delegate’s perspective – you can read this at http://rspproject.wordpress.com/2011/02/18/%E2%80%9Cmanaging-performance-data-and-documentation%E2%80%9D/.  Thanks, Jackie!

Our wonderful morning speakers very kindly agreed to give us a short interview about one aspect of data management pertinent to their talk.  Please visit the University of Glasgow data management Youtube channel to see these, and bookmark as there is more to come:  http://tiny.cc/GUdatamanagement

Our next discipline-specific event is on Monday 7 March at University of Glasgow, and focuses on archaeology – please visit http://hatii.wufoo.com/forms/managing-archaeology-data-and-documentation/ for more information and free registration!

Free seminar: Managing Performance Data and Documentation


Training course presentations now freely available online

January 11, 2011

Last November, we collaborated with the Digital Curation Centre on the production of a training course, “Managing your Research Data: Digital Curation” at the University of Glasgow, and presented it on behalf of the University’s staff development service.  The DCC have put the presentations from the day online so they’re freely available.

Visit

http://www.dcc.ac.uk/events/workshops/managing-your-research-data-digital-curation

for the goodies.

We plan to continue making as much material as possible available online for the benefit of those who can’t attend, and for those who did but would like to refresh their learning.

And feedback, as ever, is welcome!
