Have you seen a presentation on digital research methods and wondered if they are applicable to your work? Are you interested in learning new digital skills but unsure where to start?  

This is the right place for you!  

The digital method of the month meeting is a safe space to freely discuss the practicalities of learning and implementing a new digital skill in your research.  

Each month we select a method, and we have an honest and practical discussion on what it takes to learn and master it. How much time will it take to get the basics? What are the software options available? What are the most common pitfalls? Where can you find more info on the subject? Etc...   

The method of this month is Databases.

Relational Databases collect information in a structured way and enforce relationships about what goes in and out. This provides additional control over editing processes and will reduce data entry time and errors. In a relational database, data in a table can be related according to common keys or concepts. Relationships are a logical connection between different tables and are defined based on the interaction among the tables.  

No previous knowledge of the method is needed. This training event will be held via Microsoft Teams.
