  • Skills impact & strategy

    27 October 2021

    Skills impact & strategy https://dresa.org.au/events/skills-impact-strategy High quality training is critical to maintaining a competent and competitive digital research ready workforce. Maximising the impact of skills training events, course ware, training materials and resources helps ensure greatest return on investment for training providers, trainers and learners across the research sector. Measuring the effectiveness of our training endeavours and initiatives can demonstrate the value of the resource investments made and improve the quality of future skills training. Measuring training outcomes and impacts is a complex activity. While short-term assessment of training is more widely captured and reported, determining long-term behavioural change and impact on researchers is much more challenging.Training providers and trainers need to understand: - How learners react to training - what they think and feel about the training provided. - What learners retain in terms of the skills and knowledge delivered by the training. - How learners are incorporating new skills and knowledge into their workflows. - Whether the skills and knowledge acquired in training helped researchers to produce any research outputs in a more efficient and effective way. - Emerging digital skills and technologies where there are none or limited training resources. This free and online event is for digital research trainers and anyone who is responsible for or interested in training assessment and evaluation methods, and gauging the impact of training. Are you a trainer, course developer, training program manager, researcher who trains, organisation decision maker, infrastructure manager or anyone involved in digital infrastructure training programs? Then this workshop is for you! Sessions include an exploration of: - Why it’s important to measure impact - What are the challenges in evaluating short- and long-term impact - What are we assessing/evaluating, how and when - What assessment and evaluation strategies work best and when - How training developers and trainers can improve their impact - Coming full circle - what’s in it for the learner 2021-10-27 12:00:00 UTC 2021-10-27 16:30:00 UTC Australian Research Data Commons Australian Research Data CommonsIntersectQCIFNCIPawsey Supercomputing Research CentreUniversity of SydneyCSIROUniversity of MelbourneBureau of MeteorologyMonash UniversityNational Computational InfrastructureUniversity of Southern Queensland ARDC Contact us: contact@ardc.edu.au [] trainertraining coordinator 100 workshop open_to_all impacttrainingmetrics
  • FOCUS GROUP WORKSHOP: Towards effective, inclusive and scalable training in the life sciences

    6 December 2022

    FOCUS GROUP WORKSHOP: Towards effective, inclusive and scalable training in the life sciences https://dresa.org.au/events/focus-group-workshop-towards-effective-inclusive-and-scalable-training-in-the-life-sciences Join us for a consultation workshop to review draft principles and recommendations around effective, inclusive and career-spanning short-format training. This is your opportunity take a deep dive into making training in bioinformatics and digital research skills for biologists more equitable, scalable and sustainable. Scientists and educators working in the life sciences must continuously acquire new knowledge and skills to stay up-to-date with the latest methods, technologies and research. Short-format training, such as webinars, workshops and bootcamps, are popular ways of quickly learning about new topics and gaining new skills. As trainers and educators, how can we ensure that short-format training is effective and inclusive for all? How can we ensure that our learners are equipped to continue learning and applying their new skills once they return to their day jobs? And how can we do this in a way that is scalable and sustainable? [The Bicycle Principles](https://www.bikeprinciples.org/) assemble education theory and community experience into a framework for improving short-format training so that it is effective, inclusive and scalable. Over 30 international experts, including colleagues from the Australian BioCommons, Melbourne Genomics and other Australian and New Zealand organisations, helped develop the principles and an associated set of recommendations. Jason Williams, Assistant Director, DNA Learning Center, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory - a leading genomics and bioinformatics educator and project lead, will lead a focus group discussing how the Principles can be applied to deliver scalable and sustainable training in bioinformatics and digital research skills for life scientists in the Australian setting. **Speaker:** Jason Williams, Assistant Director, DNA Learning Center, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory **When:** Tuesday 6 December 2022, 3pm AEDT/ 2pm AEST/ 2:30pm ACDT/ 12pm AWST **Who the workshop is for:** This workshops is for trainers, training providers and educators who are interested in promoting effective, inclusive and scalable learning in bioinformatics and digital research skills for life scientists. **How to apply:** This focus group workshop is free but participation is subject to application with selection.
