Data Management Lab 2.0: Session 4 learning outcomes & activities

The series wrapped up with three attendees, only one of whom attended all four sessions. Despite the drop in attendance, the evaluations from the four who completed the final evaluations was positive. I’m analyzing the assessment data now for my presentation at IASSIST, but will link to the presentation in June.

There is definitely room for improvement, but there are some strong core activities. I’m looking forward to the PI version this summer and offering an expanded student version with more examples and case studies in the fall.
