Navigating Research Data Management: The Digital Scholar "How to" Series Online
We tend to need good information to get to knowledge, and in order to find that information we need to work through a lot of data. Learning how to manage your data and all the little things you can do along your research journey that can make you more efficient at extracting information. RDM is not just another acronym, it can change the way you do research. Learn about the basics of research data management and what tools and processes can help you be a more efficient researcher. After this session, your data will be at your fingertips.
For the second half of the academic year, Digital Library services will be live streaming our Digital Scholar Series. Starting off with five sessions in the month of August, presenters from DLS will showcase some of the practices and tools to improve your Digital Scholarship.
These sessions are open to all postgraduate researchers and staff working within any field of study. The topics covered deal with the management of digital materials for teaching, learning and research (what some call data), touching on digital topics throughout the research lifecycle. These sessions are aimed at making working with data more efficient so as to give you less hassle and more time to focus on your research, teaching and learning.
All sessions will start at 12 pm with the topics and dates listed below. They will be hosted on MS Teams. After registering for the event, you will have the event details forwarded to your calendar. The sessions will last 45 minutes with an extra 15 minutes for any questions or discussions. The DLS team will be present to moderate the chat and to help answer questions as they arise.
