The GODAN Action network will be delivering a new e-learning course on ‘Open Data Management in Agriculture and Nutrition’, between 13th November and 8th December 2017. The course is open to infomediaries, policy makers, administrators, project managers, researchers and scientists working in the area of agriculture.
This e-learning course is the result of a collaboration between GODAN Action partners, including Wageningen Environmental Research, AgroKnow, AidData, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR), and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), the Land Portal, the Open Data Institute (ODI) and the Technical Centre for Agriculture and Rural Cooperation (CTA).
This e-learning course aims to strengthen the capacity of data producers and data consumers to manage and use open data in agriculture and nutrition. One of the main learning objectives is for the course to be used widely within agricultural and nutrition knowledge networks, in different institutions. The course also aims to raise awareness of different types of data formats and uses, and to highlight how important it is for data to be reliable, accessible and transparent.
The course is provided in English and lasts for four weeks. Participants are expected to spend eight hours weekly on average to complete readings and engage in activities such as online tutorials and webinars.
