DVS Workshop: Data Management 101 for Scientists

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2018-10-31 17:00
Wed, Oct 31, 2018
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Scientists work with lots of data both big and small, and in many formats and systems. This workshop will introduce data management practices for scientists 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 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.

DVS Workshop: Building Blocks for Reproducibility: Open Science Framework (OSF)

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2018-10-30 14:00
Tue, Oct 30, 2018
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
In response to a growing focus on the importance of reproducibility, replication, and transparency in the research endeavor, scholars are adapting their practices and learning new skills and tools. DVS is offering a workshop series that will introduce the concepts, practices and tools that will help increase the reproducibility of your work. This workshop will introduce the Open Science Framework (OSF), which is a free, open source project management tool developed and maintained by the Center for Open Science. The OSF can help scholars manage their workflow, organize their materials, and share all or part of a project with the broader research community. This workshop will demonstrate some of the key functionalities of the tool including how to structure your materials, manage permissions, version content, integrate with third-party tools (such as Box, GitHub, or Mendeley), share materials, register projects, and track usage.

Wed, Oct 24, 2018
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
This workshop examines question wording and questionnaire design for online and paper questionnaires. This course does not include programming (which is offered in the separate Qualtrics workshop), but focuses on the conceptual issues and considerations underpinning questionnaire design, question wording, and response options. This workshop also provides an introduction to conducting survey experiments, including a brief motivation for when and why to use an experiment, common experimental designs, constructing experimental manipulations, and analysis. Registration required; please click "more information" to access the registration form.

SSRI~ Workshop: Introduction to Qualtrics Survey Software

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2018-10-24 19:00
Wed, Oct 24, 2018
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
This workshop offers an introduction to Qualtrics survey software, a package available (at no cost to researchers) for use across Duke's campus and medical center. This powerful, easy-to-use system is a great way to collect information online, whether as part of a research protocol or for administrative purposes such as program evaluation. This workshop will introduce participants to the Qualtrics system, demonstrate how to set up an account, create a questionnaire and access its results. It will also cover some basic tools that can be used to customize the questionnaire to fit your needs, such as using display and skip logic to collect more detailed information from a subset of your audience. The workshop is taught through the Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology (DISM) in collaboration with the Duke Office of Information Technology (OIT). Participants will receive a very brief overview of the consulting and other services DISM offers to help Duke researchers develop and conduct surveys.

Foundations of Engagement: Fostering Ethical Community-Based Learning and Research

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2018-10-24 16:00
Rubenstein Library 349 (Breedlove Conference Room)
West Campus

Are good intentions enough? Is service the best response? How prepared are you to make the changes you want to see in the world?

These are just a few of the questions we encourage students to consider throughout their community-engaged experiences. Join Leslie Parkins and Lindsey Miller from Duke’s Office of Civic Engagement for a modified version of the Foundations of Engagement student workshop, which explores issues around identity and positionality, power and partnerships and root causes from a faculty perspective.

Participants will come away with new questions to challenge students to think more deeply about community engagement and will learn how this offering can supplement curricular or co-curricular learning experiences.

Lunch will be provided.

Study Abroad as Service Learning: Supporting Refugee Learners in Berlin

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2018-10-23 19:30
Rubenstein Library 249 (Carpenter Conference Room)
West Campus

In summer 2018, Duke students had the unique opportunity to participate in a new global education program in Berlin that combined academic study of the cultural and geopolitical implications of migration to Europe from the Middle East with an internship with Kiron Open Higher Education, an NGO that offers open access digital education to refugees. The program was led by Erdag Göknar, Associate Professor in Duke's Asian and Middle Eastern Studies program, and Banu Gökariksel, Associate Professor of Geography at UNC.

Göknar and Gökariksel will join Matthew Rascoff, who leads the Learning Innovation team that supported the design of this program, and students from the program, to discuss the value of being immersed both intellectually and professionally in the topic of migration and refugees in Europe.

Light refreshments will be provided.
