The SSH Training Discovery Toolkit provides an inventory of training materials relevant for the Social Sciences and Humanities.
Use the search bar to discover materials or browse through the collections. The filters will help you identify your area of interest.
|Research Data Management Toolkit||
This toolkit includes a number of resources on research data management. However, due to its broad scope, the toolkit is not structured as an online course.It contains courses, videos, infographics, books and other materials
|Open Access and the Humanities: A Train the Trainer Perspective||
The goal of this ‘train the trainer’ Humanities Open Access event has three parts. First, to set a base level of knowledge and mutual understanding around the topic, the actors, and the tools and methods available. Secondly, to understand the specific challenges to training humanities researchers, as well as the specific issues and challenges faced by humanists. Thirdly, to imagine future collaborations, and a recurring programme of events and activities to enable them. This initiative arises from a collaboration between DARIAH, the Open Library of Humanities (OLH), EIFL, and FOSTER Open Science. It will consist of a series of talks establishing the context for humanities open access, the tools and resources available and their attendant issues, and the platforms and funding models that have the potential to deliver fee free, equitable and gold open access for humanists. Finally, we will end with a question and answer session and a discussion of further activities.
|DIY Research Data Management Training Kit for Librarians||
Training kit for librarians who wish to gain confidence and understanding of research data management, based on open educational materials, covering five topics:
The kit uses the Research Data Mantra online course and selected exercises from the UK Data Archive. It further contains a training schedule, podcasts for short talks, presentation slides, evaluation forms, data curation profiles and reflective writing questions based on the experience of academic librarians who have taken the course.
Data Curation Profiles provide a complete framework for interviewing a researcher in any discipline about their research data and their data management practices.
Recordings of past webinars organised by the UK Data Service.
|Data management videos||
Short online video tutorials demonstrating practical data management aspects such as writing a data management plan, encrypting data files, backing up data, etc.
|Parthenos - For Trainers - Training Videos||
The materials on this web site are intended to assist in bridging that gap, overcoming the general inclination within infrastructure projects to provide only training on tools, rather than finding effective ways to transfer a greater bulk of our experiential knowledge.
These materials are intended for reuse, so please feel free to incorporate them in to your courses and syllabi, or direct your students toward them for further learning. Please apply a CC-BY license when you do reuse them, crediting the PARTHENOS Project and the specific lecturer by name (if a video or slide deck).
This item focuses on the Training Videos that are available through Parthenos.
There are short videos, longer video lectures and webinar videos. Topics include videos on research infrastructures, standards, ontologies, data and metadata, FAIR data, Open Access and many others.
|Social Science Curriculum||
This workshop uses a tabular interview dataset from the SAFI Teaching Database and teaches data cleaning, management, analysis and visualization. There are no pre-requisites, and the materials assume no prior knowledge about the tools. We use a single dataset throughout the workshop to model the data management and analysis workflow that a researcher would use.
|Spatial Image Analytics: an introduction||
This workshop aims to introduce participants to the technologies and technical abilities required for the spatial exploration of image datasets and is of interest to a variety of digital humanities students, scholars and professionals.
Research is getting a global makeover, in part thanks to the power of the internet and the tools it provides for us, and in part due to a growing call for accountability (e.g., reproducibility and data provenance) in research. Global policies are emerging at different levels that include some aspect of Open Research, Open Scholarship, or Open Science, and inclusive of all research disciplines. But our universities are often letting us down, and they are not teaching us the knowledge, tools and skills we need to do research effectively in the 21st century.
“Open Science” has many interpretations, but at its core it is about increased rigour, accountability, and reproducibility for research. For us, it is based on the principles of inclusion, fairness, equity, and sharing. Open Science can be viewed as research simply done properly, and it extends across the Life and Physical Sciences, Engineering, and Mathematics, to Social Science and Humanities.
This MOOC is designed to help equip students and researchers with the skills they need to excel in a modern research environment. It brings together the efforts and resources of hundreds of researchers and practitioners who have all dedicated their time and experience to create a community to help propel research forward.
|UK Data Service: Manage Data||
Online data management guidance and resources for researchers, developed by the UK Data Service. This resource provides best practice guidance and advice, including examples, exercises, tools and templates. The focus is on the social sciences and research with human participants. Particular areas covered are:
