Continuing professional development

One of the key roles of the ADS is to promote good practice in the preservation, curation and use of digital data. As part of this commitment ADS works with various partners to provide continuing professional development workshops and courses for heritage environment practitioners and the wider digital preservation community.

Our CPD training can be tailored to suit different sectors of the archaeology profession including commercial contractors, consultancies, local government archaeological officers, museum curators, Historic Environment Records officers, community archaeology, academic research and undergraduate and postgraduate teaching.

CPD workshops can include the following topics:

  • Data management planning
  • The FAIR (findability, accessibility, interoperability, reusability) and CARE (collective, authority to control, responsibility, ethics) data principles
  • Archive deposition (including ADS-Easy)
  • The importance of Metadata
  • Standardised vocabularies
  • Data selection and retention
  • Digital Preservation
  • Digital Publication

The menu to the left provides examples of Past Workshops, including for undergraduate level teaching. These workshops provide examples of the different training content we can provide as well as useful sources for your own teaching.

If you or your organisation are interested in receiving training by the ADS please contact us to discuss your needs. We are prepared to create a bespoke training programme for your individual needs.
