Consent, Data Sharing and Data Reuse

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-03-21 17:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Research involving humans requires multiple approaches to protect participants’ anonymity. If you are planning to (or are required to) share your human subjects’ data outside of your original project team, or plan to re-use data you collected previously for a new research project, you will need to design a consent form/consent protocol that properly addresses these situations.  This workshop will present various research scenarios with examples of how consent protocol should be developed.  If available, a staff member of the Duke Office of Research Support will be on hand to answer questions.

ArcGIS Online

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2017-03-09 18:00

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975

This riveting documentary features found footage shot by a group of Swedish journalists (discovered some 30 years later in the cellar of Swedish Television) overlaid with commentaries and interviews from leading contemporary African-American artists, activists, musicians and scholars. Divided into 9 sections based chronologically on each successive year between 1967 and 1975, the film focuses on several topics and subjects relevant to the Black Power Movement including Opposition to United States involvement in the Vietnam War, the Black Panther Party, COINTELPRO, and the War on Drugs. The film documents these events with footage of individuals who were highly important to the movement including but not limited to Angela Davis, Stokely Carmichael, and Huey P. Newton. David Fear of Time Out New York referred to the film as "a time capsule of a turbulent era, [an] essential viewing for anyone concerned with our nation's history-and its present".

Visualizing Qualitative Data

Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

So many of the tools that have been developed for data visualization focus on data that are in spreadsheet format, especially data that are number-heavy.  For qualitative research, numerical data may not be the primary focus, or the numerical data may be difficult to visualize for other reasons.  This workshop will explore some of the complications of trying to visualize qualitative data, walking through examples of different types of qualitative data projects and the visualizations that have been produced from those projects.  Exercises will help attendees work through the process of developing visualizations for sample qualitative projects.  The workshop will include recommendations for tools that may be useful, but we will focus more on the process of identifying possible visual elements within a qualitative data project than on a specific software application.

Designing Academic Figures and Posters

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2017-02-22 18:30
Bostock 023 Training Room
West Campus

Figures and other forms of visual representation can have a huge impact on the communication of research to a broader audience.  A well designed figure can summarize research, captivate audience interest, and/or explain complicated phenomena and processes.  Likewise, becoming familiar with good strategies for poster design allows researchers to take full advantage of the opportunity to network with colleagues and promote their own research.  This workshop will cover basic considerations for designing effective academic figures and posters, including use of color, layout, fonts/typography, and software choices.
