If you don’t know what a data session is, you can read Saul’s description of learning about Conversation Analytic data sessions, or have a look at this new resource from Arizona State University that discusses language and social interaction data analysis sessions from a variety of methodological/disciplinary perspectives:

Data: In this session, Bryanna Hebenstreit (PhD Candidate at the University at Albany, SUNY) will present data set at a Habitat for Humanity build in Upstate NY. We will be analyzing a short clip showing how a volunteer gets the floor and demonstrates a technique that is presented as new for the onlookers. His demonstration is specifically targeted for the supervisor but ends up becoming a resource for all onlookers. We’ll explore how interactants ‘take over’ the main interaction and build their own talk, gestures, and embodied comportments to showcase an action to be seen by a particular interactant. Data in American English.
