BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT
As part of our NSF funded collaborative project on Data Sharing within Engineering Education Community, we conducted an empirical study to better understand the current climate of data sharing and participants’ future expectations of the field. We present findings of this mixed method study and discuss implications. Overall, we found strong support for sharing research data within the community but participants were cautious about ethical and privacy implications, as well as issues around ownership of data. Participants expressed the need for an easy to use system to support sharing research data.
