Equitable from the Beginning: Incorporating Critical Perspectives into Your Research Design
MetadataShow full item record
A research data management (RDM) education diet is calorie-dense with technical and regulatory macronutrients, but often lacks essential micronutrients such as equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility. As part of a broader effort to improve the data management diets of undergraduate Gemstone Honors research teams at the University of Maryland, College Park. The authors created a series of instructional modules on equitable data collection and research design practices. These modules enable researchers to assess the impact of their data across the research lifecycle, and widen their perspectives of data collection and analysis processes to consider implicit and transparent ethical, diversity, equity, and inclusion values at all stages of RDM.
