Open Workflow Tools: Open Science Framework

Wed, 2019-04-03 14:00
Bostock 023 Training Room
West Campus

Open Science is a growing movement that advocates for research to be transparent and openly available to all others for the purposes of engagement, validation, and extension. This workshop will present a brief overview of how researchers can make their workflows more transparent and open through the use of various tools. One particular tool and its features will be examined in depth - the Open Science Framework. The OSF has a variety of features that can help enable more open workflows as well as reproducible research practices.

The content of the workshop may be recorded. Cameras will capture the instructor station and the display screen. Ambient audio, including verbal audience  participation, will be included on the recording. Registration for the workshop indicates consent. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published please contact the instructor at anytime prior to the conclusion of the workshop.

Data Management 201: Preparing Data for Publishing

Tue, 2019-04-02 18:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Data management practices help researchers take care of their data throughout the entire research process from the planning phase to the end of a project when data might be shared or “published” within a repository. Building upon the foundational concepts covered in the data management 101 courses offered this year, this workshop will provide hands-on experience where participants will learn strategies for “curating” a dataset for formal sharing. Participants will identify common data issues, determine recommendations to optimize the dataset, generate metadata and documentation, and consider how these practices might be applied to their own research.

Participants are not required to have taken the Data Management 101 course (although it is recommended). Please bring a laptop to participate fully in the workshop.

Data Management 101 for Scientists

Tue, 2019-03-19 18:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Scientists work with lots of data both big and small, and in many formats and systems.

Good data management practices pertaining to planning, organization, documentation, storage and backup, sharing, citation, and preservation will be presented through a sciences lens using discipline-based, concrete examples. While good general data management practices are relevant across disciplines, participants working specifically within the sciences are the intended audience for this workshop.

Book Discussion: "What the Best College Teachers Do" by Ken Bain

Tue, 2019-03-19 16:00
Bostock 024
West Campus

What makes a great teacher great? Who are the professors students remember long after graduation? What the Best College Teachers Do, by Ken Bain, is the conclusion of a fifteen-year study of nearly one hundred college teachers in a wide variety of fields and universities, and offers valuable answers for all educators.

New faculty at Duke received a copy of this book at New Faculty Orientation in August 2018, and are invited to join us to discuss the book (other faculty are welcome, too - if you don't have a copy of the book, we'll provide one if you register at least a week in advance). 

Lunch will be provided.

DVS Workshop: Adobe Illustrator for Modifying Charts and Graphs

Thu, 2019-03-07 15:00
Bostock Library 023
(Library Classroom)
In this workshop, you will learn the basics of using Adobe Illustrator, the professional standard in vector graphics software, for fine-tuning charts and graphs created in other programs like Excel, Matlab and R. Many people avoid using Illustrator because of its steep learning curve, but you will see that once you know a few basic tools, it is quite easy to give all your work a consistent look, extra highlights and annotations, and that professional edge. There are no prerequisites - we will start with the basics.

DVS Workshop: Map Design

Thu, 2019-02-21 18:30
Perkins Library 218
(Towerview Room)
Making maps is a creative rather than a purely technical process. Even if you can expertly use the latest and most advanced tools, you still have to make design decisions based on your specific audience, data, and goals. This workshop will present an overview of concepts in cartography and provide practical techniques for creating effective, visually appealing maps. We will explore design principles by analyzing plenty of examples. No specific software experience or GIS knowledge is required.

DVS Workshop: Data Management 101 for Humanists

Tue, 2019-02-19 19:00
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
First Floor
Humanists work with various media, content and materials (sources) as part of their research. These sources can be considered data. This workshop will introduce data management practices for humanities researchers to consider and apply throughout the research lifecycle. Good data management practices pertaining to planning, organization, documentation, storage and backup, sharing, citation, and preservation will be presented through a humanities lens with discipline-based, concrete examples. While general good data management practices are relevant across disciplines, participants working specifically within the humanities are the intended audience for this workshop.
