WORKSHOP: Make your bioinformatics workflows findable and citable https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-make-your-bioinformatics-workflows-findable-and-citable-74e85d1c-d869-429e-b942-8391f4bab23d This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons workshop ‘Make your bioinformatics workflows findable and citable’. This workshop took place on 21 March 2023. Event description Computational workflows are invaluable resources for research communities. They help us  standardise common analyses, collaborate with other researchers, and support reproducibility. Bioinformatics workflow developers invest significant time and expertise to create, share, and maintain these resources for the benefit of the wider community and being able to easily find and access workflows is an essential factor in their uptake by the community. Increasingly, the research community is turning to workflow registries to find and access public workflows that can be applied to their research. Workflow registries support workflow findability and citation by providing a central repository and allowing users to search for and discover them easily. This workshop will introduce you to workflow registries and support attendees to register their workflows on the popular workflow registry, WorkflowHub. We’ll kick off the workshop with an introduction to the concepts underlying workflow findability, how it can benefit workflow developers, and how you can make the most of workflow registries to share your computational workflows with the research community. You will then have the opportunity to register your own workflows in WorkflowHub with support from our trainers.  Materials are shared under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International agreement unless otherwise specified and were current at the time of the event.

This webinar took place on 21 June 2022. Event description  bio.tools provides easy access to essential scientific and technical information about software, command-line tools, databases and services. It’s backed by ELIXIR, the European Infrastructure for Biological Information, and is being used in Australia to register software (e.g. Galaxy Australia, prokka). It underpins the information provided in the Australian BioCommons discovery service ToolFinder. Hans Ienasescu and Matúš Kalaš join us to explain how bio.tools uses a community driven, open science model to create this collection of resources and how it makes it easier to find, understand, utilise and cite them. They’ll delve into how bio.tools is using standard semantics (e.g. the EDAM ontology) and syntax (e.g. biotoolsSchema) to enrich the annotation and description of tools and resources. Finally, we’ll see how the community can contribute to bio.tools and take advantage of its key features to share and promote their own research software.   Materials are shared under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International agreement unless otherwise specified and were current at the time of the event.

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

Hans Ienasescu and Matúš Kalaš join us to explain how bio.tools uses a community driven, open science model to create this collection of resources and how it makes it easier to find, understand, utilise and cite them. They’ll delve into how bio.tools is using standard semantics (e.g. the EDAM ontology) and syntax (e.g. biotoolsSchema) to enrich the annotation and description of tools and resources. Finally, we’ll see how the community can contribute to bio.tools and take advantage of its key features to share and promote their own research software.   Materials are shared under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International agreement unless otherwise specified and were current at the time of the event.

Developing an organisation-wide framework to transform and uplift data capabilities https://dresa.org.au/materials/developing-an-organisation-wide-framework-to-transform-and-uplift-data-capabilities At the Bureau, data is the core of everything we do. 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

ARDC Skills Landscape https://dresa.org.au/materials/ardc-skills-landscape 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
