    UC Berkeley School of Information Launches Online Master of Information and Data Science Program

    Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Information Schools on July 18th, 2013

    The UC Berkeley School of Information has launched an online Master of Information and Data Science program.

    Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

    The I School is staking out new master's degree territory in educating data scientists. While other institutions provide individual classes, certificates, or associate master's degrees in data science, the I School has designed a comprehensive and integrated suite of courses that culminate in a capstone course designed to solidify a student's knowledge of the breadth of data science concepts and skills.

    The rigorous new 27-unit MIDS program officially begins in January 2014. Aimed at the working professional, the program will be offered online—except for a required, one-week immersion program at the I School's home at South Hall, to meet in person and explore the Bay Area tech environment.

      UNC at Chapel Hill Offers Post-Masters Certificate in Data Curation

      Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Information Schools on November 13th, 2012

      The School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is now offering a Post-Masters Certificate in Data Curation.

      Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

      With a two-week intensive kick-off on the UNC at Chapel Hill campus during summer session (May 2013), the remainder of the program will be taught online and includes guided projects that arise from a student's work experience. The 30 credit program can be completed in two years.

      Defined by Drs. Helen Tibbo, alumni distinguished professor, and Christopher (Cal) Lee, associate professor at SILS, "Digital/data curation involves selection and appraisal by creators and archivists; evolving provision of intellectual access; redundant storage; data transformations; and, for some materials a commitment to long-term preservation. Digital/data curation is stewardship that provides for the reproducibility and re-use of authentic digital data and other digital assets. Development of trustworthy and durable digital repositories; principles of sound metadata creation and capture; use of open standards for file formats and data encoding; and the promotion of information management literacy are all essential to the longevity of digital resources and the success of curation efforts."

            Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies Offers Certificate of Advanced Study in Data Science

            Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Information Schools on August 12th, 2012

            Syracuse University's School of Information Studies is offering a Certificate of Advanced Study in Data Science.

            Here's an excerpt from the program web page:

            Data scientists collect, organize, store, analyze and share big data. In other words, they know where data lives and can find it. They keep it in an accessible format ready for query. They look at data and see patterns and trends. Most importantly, they share what they find with partners, collaborators and, in many cases, the world.

            The iSchool is helping lead the dialogue in defining data science within the academic community and within industry. In doing so, students in this CAS program have the rare opportunity to place their fingerprint on the first wave of standards. This will help institutions and affiliates clarify the murky definitions of data science as it infiltrates public consciousness over the next five to ten years. Professionals with this CAS are particularly poised to lead this field. Our students gain hard, technical skills but also possess the soft, theoretical skills that organizations desperately need.

              DCEP Final Report; Centuries of Knowledge: Graduate School of Library and Information Science Data Curation Education Program

              Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Information Schools, Reports and White Papers on May 14th, 2012

              Melissa H. Cragin et al. have self-archived the DCEP Final Report; Centuries of Knowledge: Graduate School of Library and Information Science Data Curation Education Program in IDEALS.

              Here's an excerpt:

              The Centuries of Knowledge grant was designed to increase educational and research capacity in data curation at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We developed the Data Curation Education Program, a specialization within our Master of Science degree program, graduating 38 students to date. New courses developed for the specialization include Foundations of Data Curation, a survey course on the emerging field, and Digital Preservation. We developed the Summer Institute on Data Curation for practicing information professionals, facilitating the development of a community of practice across U.S. and Canadian academic and research organizations. Our outreach and service activities have led to a range of new partnerships that have resulted in student fieldwork opportunities, as well as new collaborative research and education activities resulting in 4 successful grant proposals.
