Digital research training

The scale of data and computation power available today challenges traditional research practices and requires the acquisition of new analysis and digital literacy skills.

The graduate seminar series in digital research delivered by the Centre for Digital Scholarship is designed to introduce Higher Degree Research students and Early Career Researchers to a broad range of digital research methods and tools.

For more information please contact the DHSS@UQ program manager Marco Fahmi.
