Measures to Increase the Efficiency of the Research Data Centre of the DZHW in the Areas of Data Ingest, User Requests and Communication

Start of the project: 01-Jun-2017 - End of the project: 31-Aug-2019

The project “Measures to increase the efficiency of the rdc.DZHW in the areas of data ingest, user requests and communications” is a sub-project of the Research Data Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies of the DZHW (rdc.DZHW), funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The project aims to optimize and expand existing processes of the Research Data Centre, focusing on the following areas:

  • Development of software aided process-related survey documentation (exemplified through future surveys of the DZHW, e.g. Student Life Cycle, National Academics Panel Study (NACAPS))
  • Standardisation of processing procedures and documentation of DZHW surveys
  • Setting up a service portal for efficient processing of data use requests
  • Concept development for public relations at the rdc.DZHW as well as coping strategies concerning temporary additional expenditure in the public relations area during the initial phase of the rdc.DZHW (e.g. participation in international conferences, conceptualisation of user surveys)
  • Concept development concerning the ingest of external surveys
  • Concept development for user training courses and implementation of an exemplary user training course
  • Concept development for user conferences and implementation of an exemplary user conference

Conferences

1st International DZHW User Conference on Dynamics in the Student and Academic Life Course.

Gärtner, A., Scheller, P., & Daniel, A. (2019, Mai).
1st International DZHW User Conference on Dynamics in the Student and Academic Life Course. Hannover: DZHW.
Abstract

The first international user conference provides the opportunity to present and discuss research results which deal with the student and academic life course from a longitudinal perspective. Contributions to the conference should preferably address a topic from the following areas: Determinants of educational pathways, career paths and returns, careers in science, internationalization. Quantitative, qualitative, and mixed method research results are equally welcome. The conference addresses researchers at different stages of their academic career, early stage researchers as well as PhDs and other senior researchers. Users of DZHW data are especially encouraged to present their findings.

Abstract

The course will introduce participants in the logic and application of the explorative method of social sequence analysis. The participants will learn which kind of research questions can be answered and how they can implement this practically by using the user-written sq-ado and the sadi-plugin for the software Stata. The course includes examples and practical exercises with data provided by the DZHW (DZHW Graduate Panel 2009).
