Education Materials and Associated Workshop
About the Education Materials and Associated Workshop
A set of educational materials on the theory and practice of lifecycle management of ETDs has been prepared and will be made freely available in early 2014 through a creative commons license (either the Attribution-NonCommercial- ShareAlike or other license acceptable to IMLS). The workshop provides overview and usage of the project's two main deliverables: the Guidance Documents and Lifecycle Management Tools. The workshop addresses both theory and practice, with hands-on exercises to engage participants and strenghten the lessons.
Educational materials include the following items:
- Workshop Syllabi
- Training Handouts and Exercises
- PowerPoint Presentations
- Evaluation Instruments
The workshop materials were first pilot-tested at TxETDA 2013 and then fully delivered at USetdA 2013. Learning outcomes from the workshop were assessed and are summarized here. Feedback was also solicited during the workshop about the teaching materials, both from attendees and instructors. This feedback is being used to revise the materials prior to their dissemination.
