As the world in which all people work and live becomes more data intensive, the need remains for data researchers, stewards, managers and users to discover and instructors to reuse education and training materials in order to further their formal and informal education and their professional development. New and existing education and training resources can help people achieve the skills and competencies necessary to compete and perform in their work and living environments. A number of organizations within the research data teaching and learning communities across many subject domains have been working hard to come up with ways to improve the chances for discovery of existing materials, and encourage the sharing / adapting of new and existing training resources. These ways include recommendations for metadata and other documentation, the development of metadata application profiles and implementation testbeds for learning catalogues, registries, repositories, and learning platforms. In addition, these organizations (including participants from the Research Data Alliance Education, Training and Handling of Research Data Interest Group ((RDA ETHRD-IG)) have identified some core characteristics that service providers who provide search and discovery services  can use to help them remain sustainable as project funding comes and goes, and education and training needs change. This session will cover some of the important recent developments that will hopefully, improve the discovery and reusability of learning resources, and platforms that service them.   ESIP partners and managers of two learning resource catalogues, ESIP's Data Management Training Clearinghouse (DMTC) and the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) Digital Research Skills Australasia catalogue (DReSA), who have been involved in the RDA efforts will discuss their plans for aligning their catalogues to the RDA efforts.  After initial presentations, the organizers will provide opportunities for members of the audience to participate in group discussions on topics related to the motivations, barriers, and advantages of sharing the education and training materials that instructors create.
