WWC Sprint

Data Sharing Agreements (GVX 010)

START DATE: 03/15/2021 End Date: 04/09/2021
REGISTRATION ENDS: Monday, March 08, 2021

Data sharing agreements are a critical foundational element of any data governance program. This Sprint will explore the mechanics of developing a data-sharing agreement, with emphasis on stakeholder engagement, inclusion, use, and sustainability. At the end of this course, you will develop a draft data sharing agreement that can be used in your organization.

This Sprint is designed to provide valuable information to civil service professions involved in data sharing agreement development and use. Learners who are involved in collaborating with other agencies will learn to leverage data to better inform decisions about data sharing. Participants will be expected to review provided reading materials and videos prior to the live sessions and complete the relevant assignments to assist in the development of a draft data sharing agreement.
Important Dates and Time:
Kickoff Session: Monday, March 15, 2021
Weekly Virtual Live Sessions: Mondays (2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST) and Thursdays (2:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST)
Achievable Criteria: Data Governance (WWC DG5)
Your local government will develop a documented and user-friendly process to expedite the sharing of data, including protected data, both cross-departmentally within the local government and with trusted outside partners.
In order to fulfill the DG5 Criteria of the WWC Certification Assessment, we will:
- Understand and identify the elements of a collaborative approach to data sharing
- Identify stakeholders needed to build the collective
- Identify approaches to measuring the impact
- Develop a draft data sharing charter that identifies the background, goals, data trust, operational processes, and performance assessments.
This is an online, instructor-facilitated 4-week sprint developed by GovEx Academy, part of the Centers for Civic Impact at Johns Hopkins University.
This sprint aligns with the What Works Cities Certification Criteria focused on Data Governance. The full list of criteria can be found here >>> https://www.bbhub.io/dotorg/sites/8/2017/03/WWC-Standard-Certification-Criteria.pdf
