Research digital skills training 2021
Registrations open for 2021 digital research skill workshops!
Update on 16 September: HackyHour and ResBaz events are going ahead online! Carpentry workshops are postponed because of continuing Covid-19 Alert Level and University in-person teaching restrictions. Updates will be provided soon.
We are excited to announce a series of digital skills training events open to postgraduate students and researchers from all disciplines, taking place from August 2021! We aim to help researchers at all stages feel supported in using digital tools for their work.
Check out the programme below! More events will be posted soon.
HackyHour community meetups
Come to our themed sessions and hear how researchers from across the University are using digital tools to collect and analyse their datasets. Meet other researchers working on the same problems and datasets across disciplines, and help us brainstorm what you’d like to learn. Good food and vibes will be provided. Stay on afterwards for a casual time in the common room.
