So I promised I'd throw my syllabus up for folks to look at, and voilà, I have done so.
A few foot-shuffling words about it. This is a library-school syllabus. I am teaching future librarians, archivists, and records managers. I therefore make no apology for the library focus in this syllabus. If approached to work on an informatics course for a science department, I would come up with a very different syllabus indeed. (I'm up for doing that, by the way; just not alone, unless it's a linguistics or digital-humanities course where I have sufficient disciplinary background not to make a total idiot of myself. Don't ask me to teach cheminformatics all on my lonesome, though; no can do. Find me a cheminformaticist or even a chemist to work with, and I'll see what I can accomplish.)
I haven't cribbed (much) from other curricular materials out there. Possibly I should have; I ran short on minutes. Part of it, though, is that I'm an ornery cuss with a full set of my own ornery notions about what newbie librarian data-managers need to know. That set will change over time! I'm already feeling sorry that I didn't stick in a day on personal digital archiving, and I may yet do so, since I cautiously left a free day in the syllabus.
Part of it is also that curricular materials tend to assume a whole program's worth of courses, rather than just one course. If I paid too much attention to DigCCurr, feelings of utter inadequacy would have prevented me from writing a syllabus at all! There's only so much I can do in a single semester.
The fun bit (for certain values of "fun") of writing syllabi is how rapidly they obsolesce. Teaching and working in a rapidly-growing, rapidly-developing area, as I remarked on Twitter this morning, is an exercise in constant "whoa, hey, look at THAT!" moments. Today is the first official day of class for me (although since this class is all-online and I opened it up late last week, several enterprising students have already dug in, and I even have a couple of first-week homework assignments turned in already!), and what should show up in my feedreader but an entire issue of D-Lib Magazine devoted to research data. Total facepalm moment. If this issue had been out when I was syllabus-writing, half of it would have gone in, I'm sure!
So, you know. I do what I can do. I posted a "whoa, hey, look at THAT!" note to the course-management system. I expect I'll post quite a few more of those, as the semester progresses!
