- 13:05 - Fionnuala Cousins, Robert Gordon University, Community Engagement In The Graduate Certificate Petroleum Data Management
The Graduate Certificate Petroleum Data Management at Robert Gordon University was developed with funding from Common Data Access Ltd and enjoyed an unprecedented depth of industry involvement in the design and content of the course. As a membership body with a strong commitment to the discipline, CDA was ideally placed to bring practitioners into the course development process and RGU felt that while doing so was atypical, the benefits would be substantial. Now that the course is in its third cohort, the course leader will share her reflections on the development process, including why it was so unusual, whether the anticipated benefits of the development approach were realised and the ongoing plans for community engagement.
- 13:25 - Chris Frost, DataCo, & Dave Pert, Shell UK, Unstructured Data Categorization Using Data Analytics
- 13:45 - Panel and Group Discussion
- 14:30 - Event Close
