On Wednesday, 13th November the MIRIAD Online Group (MOG) start a series of bi-weekly workshops introducing you to easy ways to set up your own research blog and manage its content.
- 13th November, 3.30-5pm – JD C1.02 (ground floor of John Dalton Building)
- 27th November, 3.30-5pm – JD C1.01 (ground floor of John Dalton Building)
- 11th December, 3.30-5pm – JD C1.01 (ground floor of John Dalton Building)
The workshops are aimed at postgraduates and staff interested in how the Web might be a useful tool for their own research – or at least intrigued enough to find out whether it could be. The workshops will be practical and ‘hands-on’ and aimed at an introductory level. No previous experience of blogging or maintaining a personal Web site is required (though it may help). The workshop will be held in a computer lab in the John Dalton building (so no personal laptops required) and will led by a combination of MIRIAD postgraduates Hannah Allan, Anna Frew, David Jackson & Lewis Sykes.
Interspersing the workshops will be a series of ‘How I Use the Web for My Research’ presentations by MIRIAD postgrads (and staff if they want).
- 20th November, 3.30-5pm – Righton Building, 1st Floor
- 4th December, 3.30-5pm – Righton Building, 1st Floor
- 18th December, 3.30-5pm – Righton Building, 1st Floor
The presentations are an accompaniment to the workshops and a platform to share practices, introduce ideas and provoke thought. We’re taking the position that the Web is a tool and medium academics just can’t ignore – but that the way individual researchers use the Web should be as unique as their research.
