Data is a very important part of being a Researcher in general, but it is particularly important to be aware that UTS is positioning itself as the Data Intensive University.
With all of our orientation madness time has slipped by and it has already been a month since Research week! Below are links to all of the workshop materials that were used on Monday 6th of February. The theme of the day was Setting the Scene and was aimed at bringing us all up to speed with the Research Environment at UTS.
Will 'future' you understand 'today' you's descriptions of your data collection and analysis processes? Can you relate to file names that look something like 'final.doc', 'finalv2.doc', or 'finalfinalv2.doc'?
Where is your data? Do you need to share it with others, or work on it from different locations? Have you thought about how you might access your data in the future if the software you're using now no longer exists?
In research, we like to talk about 'standing on the shoulders of giants' - but will someone be able to stand on your shoulders? Have you thought about sharing your research data after you've extracted all you can from it?
