    7. 7. • “Are we trying to fill a gap in the market that doesn‟t exist?”• “Why compromise our credible, hard won relationships with academics around teaching and learning”

Training• Working group• Evaluating training resources• PhD – e.g. electronic theses• Gather evidence – examples of good and bad practice, issues highlighted by researchers, data reuse, collate• Where data meets scholarly communications – data citation – journals and data – “a statement on how the underlying research materials – such as data, samples or models – can be accessed” RCUK
