We had three great sessions in the library on day two, related to teaching and in particular to learning.futures. The morning session featured Jo McKenzie and Peter Kandlbinder from IML (Institute for Multimedia and Learning). Jo started off with a presentation [link available soon] about what learning.futures means from a teaching practice perspective, and discussed the compliance process.
Day three of Learn.Teach.Research was all about data - how to find it, clean it, analyse it and visualise it. Intended to build on the momentum of the Data Science Symposium held early this year, the day was all about making data science accessible to anyone wanting to get started, but unsure where to begin.
The sessions that ran on day one of Learn.Teach.Reasearch were all about research impact - Where to publish, how to create your research profile, and what exactly research impact is, and why it matters to the University.

The Literature Review day of Research Week always seems to be popular. I guess it is the thing which we in the library are most identified with in relation to how we can assist research students. Of course you all know that searching for the Literature Review is but one thing!
We had three main presenters (besides myself!) on the Wednesday of Research Week.
The final day of Research Week is traditionally data focussed, and this year was no different.
Session 1: Insider's guide to getting published
Learn about the publishing process with insider tips and advice from UTS academics. The session will include an introduction to the academic publishing system, a guide to writing for publication, and tips from academics on how to get your article published.
The "Keeping up to date" session on the morning of Thursday 5th February was great for collegiality and sharing tips and ideas on keeping up to date in the digital age and showcasing referencing software for scholars. We covered EndNote, Mendeley and Evernote all popular and all good! We broke up into 3 groups with Mendeley being the most popular, EverNote and Advanced EndNote.
The first day of Research Week touched on essential researcher survival skills including an understanding of the bigger picture of how research works at UTS, followed by specific advice on how to get started, then practical tips from recent graduates and experienced supervisors, and rounded off with information from the groups providing research support around UTS.
Australian Antarctic Data Centre has a great video on how to complete a Data management plan. It shows step by step instructions to add research materials to a plan. The instructions are quite general.
