    Data Storytelling https://dresa.org.au/events/data-storytelling-458a1a9f-b7c9-4ed0-97cc-821ecd6d55dc Research communication is much more than just writing journal papers; to maximise the impact of your work, it's vital that you make your research findings accessible and engaging to a wide audience. Data storytelling is a powerful way achieving this, by conveying your ideas in a clear and memorable way. This interactive webinar focuses on developing your data storytelling skills by introducing a range of data visualisation techniques that you can use to combine the three elements of data, visuals and narrative into a meaningful and memorable story. By using these three elements, you can weave a story about your research for an array of audiences, in a way that they will connect with and remember. 2022-11-16 13:30:00 UTC 2022-11-16 15:30:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] webinar open_to_all []

  • A Guide to Reproducible Research

    A Guide to Reproducible Research https://dresa.org.au/events/a-guide-to-reproducible-research-57ab8022-043e-4046-a604-e78f4cd9c13d The idea that you can duplicate an experiment and get the same conclusion is the basis for all scientific discoveries. Reproducible research is data analysis that starts with the raw data and offers a transparent workflow to arrive at the same results and conclusions. However not all studies are replicable due to lack of information on the process. Therefore reproducibility in research is extremely important. Researchers genuinely want to make their research more reproducible, but sometimes don't know where to start and often don't have the available time to investigate or establish methods on how reproducible research can speed up every day work. We aim for the philosophy 'Be better than you were yesterday'. Reproducibility is a process, and we highlight there is no expectation to go from beginner to expert in a single workshop. Instead, we offer some steps you can take towards the reproducibility path following our Steps to Reproducible Research self paced program. 2022-09-07 13:30:00 UTC 2022-09-07 15:00:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] webinar open_to_all []

    Introduction to Unix https://dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-unix-079e5b5c-0387-441c-88bf-32b786a38f5b The Unix shell has been around longer than most of its users have been alive. It has survived so long because it’s a power tool that allows people to do complex things with just a few keystrokes. More importantly, it helps them combine existing programs in new ways and automate repetitive tasks so they aren’t typing the same things over and over again. Use of the shell is fundamental to using a wide range of other powerful tools and computing resources (including 'high-performance computing' supercomputers). This Software Carpentry workshop will start you on a path towards using these resources effectively. 2022-12-05 09:00:00 UTC 2022-12-06 12:30:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] workshop open_to_all []

During the workshop researchers will reflect on reasons for making their research data FAIR and self-assess on how FAIR their research data is and then learn about resources available for researchers to make their data FAIR. 2022-09-14 09:00:00 UTC 2022-09-14 12:00:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] workshop host_institution []
  • Version Control with Git

    17 November 2022

    Version Control with Git https://dresa.org.au/events/version-control-with-git-588333af-0900-4e89-83ee-f956057407ef Version control is the lab notebook of the digital world: it’s what professionals use to keep track of what they’ve done and to collaborate with other people. Every large software development project relies on it, and most programmers use it for their small jobs as well. And it isn’t just for software: books, papers, small data sets, and anything that changes over time or needs to be shared can and should be stored in a version control system. 2022-11-17 09:00:00 UTC 2022-11-17 12:30:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] workshop open_to_all []
