Researchers had extra support at the Academic Data Centre in the Winter 2022 semester thanks to mathematics and statistics students. Nine students enrolled in the statistical consulting courses had the opportunity to assist in the centre to hone their skills and gain valuable hands-on experience.
The venture is part of a growing collaboration between the centre and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics that allows students at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctorate levels to apply their course learning to real scientific statistical analysis projects.
A webinar hosted by the Office of Research and Innovation Services and the Leddy Library on Friday, March 25, will provide instruction in “Data Management Planning for Tri-Agency Grant Applications.”
Data management is more than just a buzzword or a new requirement for grant funding agencies. It is a framework for long-term, secure, sustainable preservation of the data you collect through research projects.
Planning for good research data management can be fraught with difficult questions:
Students and researchers seeking to learn more about applying data and statistical analysis to their research can now take advantage of a series of research data online workshops.
Librarians and data experts at the Leddy Library’s Academic Data Centre have curated nine workshops designed to introduce students to both geospatial and numeric datasets using geographic information systems and statistical applications as well as research data management support.
