CONVERGE Collecting and Sharing Perishable Data Training Module: A Demonstration Webinar


Date: August 6, 2021
Time: 12 to 12:30 pm MT


This webinar will provide a demonstration of the recently released CONVERGE Collecting and Sharing Perishable Data Training Module. This module provides an overview of what perishable data is, how to ethically collect it, and why such data is vital for advancing hazards and disaster research.

If you are an educator, student, researcher, practitioner, or other professional hoping to learn more about this free, online resource, please join us. The webinar will feature tips for how you can integrate the Collecting and Sharing Perishable Data Training Module into your classroom or use it to advance your research. In addition, you will see how the module functions and be able to view the resources associated with it. The new module, like the others in the series, concludes with a 10-question quiz. Upon successful completion of the quiz, users receive a certificate, which is worth one contact hour of general management training through the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) certification program.

The CONVERGE Collecting and Sharing Perishable Data Training Module—developed with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Science Foundation—is now available via the CONVERGE website. We encourage you to access it as well as the CONVERGE Assignment Bank and Annotated Bibliographies in advance of the webinar.
