The Digital Researcher
19 October, Nottingham
Are you making the most of new technologies in your research?
The Vitae Midlands Hub and the Midlands Energy Consortium are running the Digital Researcher to help researchers make the most of new technologies in their research. This event will provide hands on experience and will allow researchers to explore the use of Web 2.0 in research, networks and building their own online profiles.
The interactive event, which will be held at the University of Nottingham, is for postgraduate researchers and research staff. It will include presentations and interactive sessions on subjects such as microblogging, RSS feeds, social networking and social citation sharing. Participants will explore and develop the skills needed for research in an increasingly digital world and gain ideas for managing information.
On the day participants will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of:
- the role that online networks can play in supporting research and researchers' careers
- how to manage your online profile (positively)
- how to build networks to support your research and career
- the range of different tools that are available to support you and your research
