Data Tree is an innovative new free course – with 5 regional face-to-face live workshops – aimed at PhD students & early career researchers which is packed with strategies, practical advice and tips on data management and communicating data research meaningfully and effectively.
Self-paced and featuring video interviews from experts covering all aspects of data communication and data management, the online course is funded by NERC and will launch in the summer.
But booking is open now for the regional workshops – also FREE – and we want to encourage PhD students and early career researchers to take part.
Data Tree Workshops will give students the chance to get early previews of the course content, and to trial some of the learning methods.
All are half-day, starting at 12.30pm for 1pm until 4.30pm. Booking is open at https://store.rdg.ac/DataTreeFace2FaceWorkshops . (NB bookings close 5 working days before each workshop)
The London workshop will take up the theme of Data Management and Publishing, which is one of the 8 Data Tree modules. Like the online course the workshop will feature strategies, practical advice and tips on data management and publishing papers and data. Sharing their expertise at the workshop will be Iain Hrynaszkiewicz, head of data publishing at Springer Nature, and Jane Hesling, associate editor at Environmental Research Letters. There will be fun, food and prizes!
