What is the Data Scholar Program?
The Baylor University Library’s Data Scholar Program is a collection of self-paced data & digital scholarship video modules designed specifically to meet the needs of the Baylor research community. Modules are offered in the following 5 categories: (1) Data Visualization, (2) Qualitative Data Analysis/Test Data Mining, (3) Data Scripting, (4) Research Data Management, and (5) Finding Secondary Data.
The modules are included in a self-enrolling Canvas course. Sign up on Canvas Here

Badges and Certificate
If two modules in a single category are passed, the researcher is issued a digital badge in this category. See Available Badges Here. A full Data Scholar Certificate (non-transcript) is issued to researchers who complete 3 digital badges, one of which must be Research Data Management or Finding Secondary Data.
