Research Management Best Practices

Thursday, January 26 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in SOE 301

Audience: Faculty, Staff, Students
Research management is the process of effectively managing your data (of all kinds) before, during, and after a project. This ensures that your research is secure, facilitates data analysis and dissemination of findings, promotes the reuse of your data by other researchers, and assures compliance with federal guidelines. No matter what kind of research you do, effective management of your research and data are key to your success.

Come to this workshop to learn the best practices of research management. We will discuss why it matters and share ideas. This presentation will take a holistic approach to “data” to include all forms ofresearch input. All types of researchers are welcome! Pizza lunch will be served.

Presenter: Lynda Kellam, Data Services Librarian, The University Libraries. For more information: http://uncg.libguides.com/rdm.

Jusmar is now a Finalist for the Wells Fargo North Carolina Principal of the Year, which will be selected in spring 2017.
 
Jusmar graduated from UNCG in 2013 with a Masters in School Administration. Jusmar was also a member of the first cohort of the Piedmont Triad Leadership Academy (2011-2014), which was a grant-funded principal preparation partnership among UNCG and four area school districts. 

 

UNCG has been awarded $999,943 grant from the NSF. The National Science Foundation will support a collaborative effort proposed by faculty and staff within UNCG’s College of Arts and Science, School of Education and University Teaching and Learning Commons.  

The project STAMPS: Science, Technology and Math Preparation Scholarships is serving the national interest by supporting academically talented and financially needy students, including minority, women and first generation college students, in their efforts to complete their college degrees in the STEM disciplines (Natural, Physical, Earth and Computer Sciences). The project is providing financial, academic, mentoring and advising support to talented students in the STEM disciplines to increase their retention rates and better prepare students for science and technology-based careers or for advance study in professional (e.g., medical, dental, pharmacy, graduate) schools. By doing so, the project is increasing the pool of talented individuals for highly skilled jobs or careers in science and technology. The project is also developing best practices on how to support students for a skilled workforce which will be shared with other universities. Project personnel:
PI: Stanley Faeth – Dept of Biology and CAS Associate Dean
CoPIs: Ayesha Boyce – Educational Research Methodology, SOE
Jeffry Patton – Dept of Geography, CAS
Lee Phillips – Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creativity Office, UTLC
