EDDI 2021 Training Fair
This event extends the usual DDI tutorials taught as a precursor to EDDI conferences with some additional events. In addition to the usual tutorials on each of the major specifications (DDI Codebook and DDI Lifecycle) and the upcoming DDI Cross Domain Integration, this year two additional tutorials will be conducted: Discovering DDI, intended for newcomers who may want to learn what DDI is without diving into the details, and DDI Tools and Services, an overview of available software and services from both commercial and free vendors.
EDDI 2021 is a free, virtual event, and all tutorials will be open to anyone who is interested in attending. Registration before the event is required, with individual registration for each tutorial.
Track Two – DDI Specifications
These tutorials provide a detailed look at how each of these specifications can be used to describe important metadata for different purposes.
DDI Lifecycle Tutorial
DDI Lifecycle addresses the needs of metadata management not only for archives and data disseminators, but also throughout the data lifecycle, from data collection and survey design through the end stages. It is also a useful tool for understanding how related data sets fit together, whether as a longitudinal or repeat cross-sectional effort, or through ad-hoc comparison and harmonization. A range of topics will cover a broad description of the specification, as well as providing focus on specific aspects of the standard for metadata and data management. Presenters include Wendy Thomas, Hayley Mills, Kaia Kulla, and Benjamin Beuster.
Note that the event will be recorded and the recording will be published by DDI and CODATA via their communication channels, such as websites and/or Vimeo. The event participants will be seen and heard in these recordings if they decide to switch on their camera and/or audio, which will be turned-off by default upon start of the meeting.
