Event description

Description

Your host for this event is Kim Doyle, Research Community Co ordinator from Research Platforms Services

About this Event:

Data Storytelling is a two-day interactive event on Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th July. The event will be held at the new State of the Art Digital Studio in Arts West, University of Melbourne and is focused entirely on telling interesting stories with data.

Data Storytelling for Researchers will comprise four streams, each with a focus on different methods of narrativization using different digital tools:

  • Displaying Data Divinely: Archiving and Online Exhibits
  • Digital Archives of 3D Objects
  • Textual Analysis of Social Media Data
  • Analysis and Visualisation of Public Databases.

Please select only ONE ticket for the stream you wish to particpate in. Do NOT select multiple tickets.

This is not your average training workshop. Instead of learning to use digital tools the standard way via an instructor-student approach, participants will develop their own data sets, problem solve, and learn to approach data creatively through hands-on, intuitive methods. You’ll be mentored in groups and supported in answering self-guided research questions with new digital approaches, from data collection to communicating your research story with stunning data visualisations.

At the end of the event, participants will present their data project proposal to a panel of experts for feedback. There will also be the opportunity to hear from Keynote speakers, engage with experts in the field, share ideas with other researchers, and meet like-minded people.

A little bit about us......

We are researchers, training researchers! We get you! and would like to embrace you into our Community. Please feel free to swing by our new space called "Co - Lab", located in Room 329, Eastern Resource Centre, Level 3, Building #171, for a cup of tea and a chat. You are welcome anytime and we would love to see you there!

Research Platforms provides, builds and maintains ICT infrastructure for researchers, in particular cloud compute infrastructure and data storage infrastructure. Enabling data-driven research and the effective use of IT is at the centre of everything we do. We service more than 3,000 researchers from all disciplines across Parkville, within Victoria, and nationally.We work closely with key research support units including Faculty IT teams, the Melbourne eResearch Group, the Library, and other Infrastructure Services departments.

As well as providing underlying infrastructure services, we also work with researchers to provide a range of training, engagement and community building activities aimed at both maximising usage of the facilities, and maximising the value researchers get from them. By building community infrastructure in this way, we connect researchers with each other, with the supplied infrastructure, and with related infrastructure and services such as NCI, Pawsey, VLSCI, etc.
