The basic RDM training course aims to provide participants with basic good practices for managing
data. It covers organizing raw data in spreadsheets and databases, data manipulation, data checking, and
The responsibilities of the researcher extend beyond the conduct and oversight of the research. The success of a research project is measured not only through its publications, but more importantly by making the data available to the wider community through information databases and archives.
In this course, you will be able to relate the benefits of sustainable rice farming to
farmers; explain the SRP Standards on rice cultivation and the performance indicators; and conduct data
collection and assessment among farmers to measure compliance to SRP performance indicators.
There are many sources of knowledge, and many ways of gaining skills. IRRI’s approach has three distinct advantages.
We focus on hands-on learning. Participants are exposed to, are part of and learn within the reality of agricultural and scientific processes.
We develop and customise online courses with face-to-face blended learning delivery around the rice-based agri-food sector.
Participants not only learn, they build a network of fellow learners who are in their own employment addressing many of the same issues. Over a career this network will be as valuable as the learning itself.
Participants will meet and get to know world-leading scientists and practitioners in their field of interest.
All IRRI Education courses gets designed, developed, and delivered by IRRI Scientists, based on their innovative and current edge research knowledge.
