WORKSHOP: R: fundamental skills for biologists https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-r-fundamental-skills-for-biologists-81aa00db-63ad-4962-a7ac-b885bf9f676b This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons workshop ‘R: fundamental skills for biologists’. This workshop took place over four, three-hour sessions on 1, 8, 15 and 22 June 2022.   Event description Biologists need data analysis skills to be able to interpret, visualise and communicate their research results. While Excel can cover some data analysis needs, there is a better choice, particularly for large and complex datasets.  R is a free, open-source software and programming language that enables data exploration, statistical analysis, visualisation and more. The large variety of R packages available for analysing biological data make it a robust and flexible option for data of all shapes and sizes.  Getting started can be a little daunting for those without a background in statistics and programming. In this workshop we will equip you with the foundations for getting the most out of R and RStudio, an interactive way of structuring and keeping track of your work in R. Using biological data from a model of influenza infection, you will learn how to efficiently and reproducibly organise, read, wrangle, analyse, visualise and generate reports from your data in R. Topics covered in this workshop include: Spreadsheets, organising data and first steps with R Manipulating and analysing data with dplyr Data visualisation Summarized experiments and getting started with Bioconductor   This workshop is presented by the Australian BioCommons and Saskia Freytag from WEHI  with the assistance of a network of facilitators from the national Bioinformatics Training Cooperative. Materials are shared under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International agreement unless otherwise specified and were current at the time of the event. Files and materials included in this record: Event metadata (PDF): Information about the event including, description, event URL, learning objectives, prerequisites, technical requirements etc. Index of training materials (PDF): List and description of all materials associated with this event including the name, format, location and a brief description of each file.

Our vision is to deliver astronomy-focused training, support and expertise to maximise the scientific return on investments in astronomical data & computing infrastructure. During these last 3 years, we have delivered dozens of face-to-face, hands-on workshops and created several hours worth of online tutorial materials. This talk will focus on our journey to deliver this computational skills training to the community, exploring how we chose different delivery pathways and content, based both on community input as well as our professional expertise and understanding of existing skill gaps. Most importantly we will discuss our plans for the future and how we are working on actively including the community in developing new training material beyond the usual skills survey. Come along to this talk if you would like to hear about a national effort to deliver computational skills training and would like to know more about potential new avenues to provide just-in-time training and how to collaborate with ADACS.  contact@ardc.edu.au astronomy, data skills, eresearch skills, skills, computational skills, training, skills gaps, astronomy-focused training, training material

The strong focus on building community to complement training, has fostered an environment of learning, networking and sharing of expertise. Hear what the Graduate research students have to say about the value of skills training and how it has impacted their research; how the community has enabled them to network with a broad range of researchers and affiliate partner groups they would not ordinarily be in contact with; how their research journey has been enhanced by working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, as well as sharpening their teaching skills. The rapid refocus from face - face to online delivery, as a result of the pandemic, highlights the importance of the multi-faceted online approach including workshops, drop-in sessions, SLACK chat and online learning resources. As a result of the shift to online, the range of strategic external partner/affiliate groups has extended and demand for workshops and drop-ins has increased.  Learn how the instructors have altered their pedagogical approach to engage workshop and drop-in participants; how they have overcome some of the challenges of facilitating in an online environment; and how this is preparing them to become part of a digitally skilled workforce. contact@ardc.edu.au skills, training, eresearch skills, data skills, online learning, pedagogy, train the trainer, digitally skilled workforce, training material

ARDC Skills Landscape https://dresa.org.au/materials/ardc-skills-landscape-56b224ca-9e30-4771-8615-d028c7be86a6 The Australian Research Data Commons is driving transformational change in the research data ecosystem, enabling researchers to conduct world class data-intensive research. One interconnected component of this ecosystem is skills development/uplift, which is critical to the Commons and its purpose of providing Australian researchers with a competitive advantage through data.   In this presentation, Kathryn Unsworth introduces the ARDC Skills Landscape. The Landscape is a first step in developing a national skills framework to enable a coordinated and cohesive approach to skills development across the Australian eResearch sector. It is also a first step towards helping to analyse current approaches in data training to identify: - Siloed skills initiatives, and finding ways to build partnerships and improve collaboration - Skills deficits, and working to address the gaps in data skills - Areas of skills development for investment by skills stakeholders like universities, research organisations, skills and training service providers, ARDC, etc.   contact@ardc.edu.au skills, data skills, eresearch skills, community, skilled workforce, FAIR, research data management, data stewardship, data governance, data use, data generation, training material

We collect millions of observations from our networks and external sources and convert these into essential weather, climate, water and ocean services. To respond effectively to the rapidly evolving data landscape, the Data 2022 and Beyond approach has been developed to position the organisation to maximise the impact and value of data. The approach means transforming our data governance, practices and processes. It provides opportunities to leverage, enhance and grow data skills and competencies, while harnessing innovative technologies and methodologies for managing and using data. The Bureau will highlight the complexities of developing an organisation wide data management program in an operational environment and share some examples, learnings and reflections on the uplift journey so far. Key topics will include establishing the team, resources and tools to enhance data governance practices as well as engaging and collaborating with stakeholders. contact@ardc.edu.au data skills, research data framework, data management, data governance, data skills uplift, data capabilities, skills development, innovative technologies, stakeholder engagement, training material

As part of a training program in machine learning, visualisation, and computing tools, we have established a series of over 20 workshops over the year where either Monash or QCIF hosts the event for some 20-40 of their researchers and students, while some 5 places are offered to participants from the other institution. In the longer term we aim to share material developed at one institution and have trainers present it at the other. In this talk we will describe the many benefits we have found to this approach including access to a wider range of expertise in several rapidly developing fields, upskilling of trainers, faster identification of emerging training needs, and peer learning for trainers. contact@ardc.edu.au data skills, training partnerships, data science, AI, training material
