By the end of this module, learners will:
This module is suitable for data stewards and trainers seeking introductory learning material. It will take around 1 hour and 30 minutes to complete the module.
The materials include video presentations, full video transcripts, PowerPoint presentations and various learning activities and resources to support learning.
|Voices of the Parliament: A Corpus Approach to Parliamentary Discourse Research
While corpus methods are widely used in linguistics, including gender analysis, this tutorial shows the potential of richly annotated language corpora for research of the socio-cultural context and changes over time that are reflected through language use. The tutorial encourages students and scholars of modern languages, as well as users from other fields of digital humanities and social sciences who are interested in the study of socio-cultural phenomena through language, to engage with user-friendly digital tools for the analysis of large text collections. The tutorial is designed in such a way that it takes full advantage of both linguistic annotations and the available speaker and text metadata to formulate powerful quantitative queries that are then further extended with manual qualitative analysis in order to ensure adequate framing and interpretation of the results.
The tutorial demonstrates the potential of parliamentary corpora research via concordancers without the need for programming skills. No prior experience in using language corpora and corpus querying tools is required in order to follow this tutorial. While the same analysis could be carried out on any parliamentary corpus with similar annotations and metadata, in this tutorial we will use the siParl 2.0 corpus which contains parliamentary debates of the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia from 1990 to 2018. Knowledge of Slovenian is not required to follow the tutorial. To reproduce the analyses in other languages, we invite you to explore a parliamentary corpus of your choice from those available through CLARIN.

#dariahTeach is a platform for Open Educational Resources (OER) for Digital Arts and Humanities educators and students, but also beyond this aiming at Higher Education across a spectrum of disciplines, at teachers and trainers engaged in the digital transformation of programme content and learning methods. #dariaTeach has two key objectives: sharing and reuse, thus developing a place for people to publish their teaching material and for others to use it in their own teaching.
OpenLearn Create provides a lower cost solution for projects and organisations wanting to deliver Open Educational Resources and free hosting of your course if you don't require additional support. It enables you to personalise material to suit your learners, has a low barrier to collaborative community development of learning materials and a space to experiment with new technologies and ways of working.
OpenLearn Create provides a home for research projects which trial new educational technologies and practice.
|UK Data Service: Survey and Census Data
This source includes a series of resources in the form of guides and e-books dedicated to trainers and students interested in sample design, weighting, changes over time using cross sectional and longitudinal data and mapping census data using different software.
|UK Data Service: Secure Lab
The UK Data Service SecureLab has enabled secure access to the most sensitive and confidential data in the collection since 2011. SecureLab provides controlled access to data that are too detailed, sensitive or confidential to be made available under less restrictive access levels.
