GDSU Educational Sessions

The Grant Development Support Unit is hosting several educational sessions. Sessions are free and open to interested faculty, staff, and students.

Data Management Basics for Agricultural Data
February 13, 2018
Video-linked: Research Services 130 (Wooster), Agricultural Administration 250A (Columbus)
1 – 3 p.m.

Working with agricultural data can lead to a variety of challenges including discipline specific issues such as: questions about ownership, difficulties in ‘matching’ or aggregating data, and data being linked to land value. This is all in addition to the normal issues of working with data including: creating a file naming system, tracking versions, and maintaining meaningful metadata for your research projects. Join Amanda Rinehart (Data Management Services Librarian) and Gwen Short (OARDC Librarian) for a workshop addressing these issues. Please bring a laptop or other productivity device in order to fully participate. There will be presenters in Wooster and Columbus.

Team Science
March 21, 2018
Video-linked: Research Services 130 (Wooster), Kottman Hall 200 (Columbus)
11 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Federal agencies are increasingly allocating funding to address societal grand challenges. Universities understand that mounting successful efforts in response require team science approaches.  RA/RD professionals play an essential role in supporting these efforts.  This presentation will define types of team science, describe major award programs supported by several of the federal agencies, and discuss how RA/RD can facilitate the successful development and submission of these proposals. Our presenter, Kate Hayes-Ozello, will be located in Columbus.

The Cayuse SF424 system is a web-based product that facilitates electronic preparation and submission of proposals to federal agencies including NIH, NSF, and USDA.

Aimee Nielsen-Link will be presenting from Columbus, with personal assistance available in Wooster.
