Remote Research Basics
Thursday 7 May, 12.00 pm - 1.30 pm
In this webinar we will address network literacy and demonstrate some data movement solutions. We'll provide some advice on using some simple tools and tests you can do at home to understand more about how to make the most of your internet connection while working from home. We'll also take you through some of the collaborative research tools that are available to help you continue to work together (but remotely) throughout the current restrictions. You will learn about networks, integrated tools, data and storage and where all these things fit in the researcher’s toolkit.
This webinar is targeted at researchers who would like to be more confident using some of the technical the options available to them. It is especially tailored for those with little to no technical knowledge and will include a demonstration of the tools, using basic programming commands, but requires no previous knowledge of programming.
Remote Research Challenges 1: Collecting Data Remotely
Thursday 21 May, 12.00 pm - 1.30 pm
Working remotely can mean that researchers are separated from their usual places of work and collecting data. In this webinar invited speakers will talk about remote research data collection methods from how best to build an online survey to working with remote control drones.
Remote Research Challenge 2: Maintaining and Building Communities
Thursday 4 June, 12.00 pm - 1.30 pm
Staying connected to our communities while we are all working remotely is another research challenge we are experiencing during the COVID-19 restrictions. How can we adapt available technologies to continue research collaboration? How can we transform the experiences of traditional conferences and seminars to successful forms of research engagement and communication? This webinar will highlight some recent experiences in running online conferences, creative approaches to research presentations and different ways we can stay connected to our communities while working from home.
Remote Research Challenges 3: Remote Data Storage and Analysis
Thursday 18 June, 12.00 pm - 1.30 pm
Remote Research Challenges 4: Building Remote Data Workflows
Thursday 2 July, 12.00 pm - 1.30 pm
