GB22 Training Event for Nodes

2015 Training event for Node Managers and teams returns to a core topic for GBIF: the publishing of biodiversity data online. It is time to review the very diverse data types covered by current data publishing and to introduce sample-based data, a new data type that GBIF will start indexing in 2015 and that promises to transform the data publishing landscape.

This event has been designed with a strong practical approach in mind, with lots of group work, partial support for languages other than English, and the possibility to evaluate your learning and receive an official certification in the form of a Mozilla Open Badge.

For in-depth information about the event, you can check its instructional design document.

NEW: The final report for the event is now available.
