This deliverable describes the first release of the SSHOC Training Toolkit which was launched on April 20th 2020 . The Toolkit consists of an inventory of various learning and training materials that trainers in the Social

Sciences and Humanities (SSH) can use to develop and improve their own training activities.

The Toolkit at the time of the launch listed over 70 materials from 41 different sources in various formats, such as slides, modules, videos, games and other items. Materials cover a range of topics including Research Data Management, FAIR data, text encoding, Open Science, and quantitative analysis, as well as didactics for better development and implementation of training activities

Information about these train-the-trainer materials was collected and are displayed using a dedicated drupal- based application that was already utilized for the inventory of existing training materials described in D6.7 Inventory of existing learning materials (Ďurčo, Illmayer & Barbot, 2019).

The Toolkit will be further developed in collaboration with the SSHOC Training Community and presented and evaluated during the SSHOC Train-the-Trainer Bootcamps.

Note on the terminology

While the original title of the toolkit mentioned in the grant proposal and agreement was “SSHOC Train-the- Trainer Toolkit” rather than “SSHOC Training Toolkit”, the task team has decided to adapt the name to “SSHOC Training Toolkit” as it more accurately describes the content of the toolkit and its use. The Toolkit is directed at SSH trainers, but next to train-the-trainer materials, the toolkit also contains information on other learning and training materials available for the SSH community. The development of the toolkit was based on an already performed inventory for SSH learning materials (D6.7) and it was felt that the collected information was of use to SSH trainers and the SSH community as well. Therefore, it was decided to adjust the name of the toolkit to better reflect its content and potential use. The term “SSHOC Training Toolkit” is hence used in the deliverable names and in the SSHOC online communication.
