Managing Your Data (Engineering Division A RDC) [Places] 14:00 - 15:00 Cambridge University Libraries Online

There is an increased emphasis on managing and sharing data produced in research. Many of the research funders supporting work at the University of Cambridge require that research data are openly available with as few restrictions as possible.

Research data management is a complex issue, but done correctly from the start, could save you a lot of time and hassle at the end of the project; when preparing your data for a publication or writing up your thesis. Research data takes many forms, ranging from measurements, numbers and images to documents and publications.

This module aims to help you get started with managing your data by introducing you to key principles around organising, storing, archiving and sharing your data. You will also learn how to create your own Data Management Plan.

Designing Conference Posters (Engineering Division C RDC) new [Places] 15:30 - 16:30 Cambridge University Libraries Online

Conference posters are a simple, visual, and effective way of sharing your research. They may be presented at academic or professional conferences, Departmental events, or educational events for the general public. A well-designed poster allows you to communicate information about your work in a concise and appealing manner, and engage with colleagues, peers and others in a conversational setting.

Creating a conference poster is a balancing act between including enough detail to effectively describe your work, and keeping it visually attractive and minimal enough that people can understand at least the main points at a glance.

This module will help you create effective conference posters and introduce key design principles.

Wed 9
Referencing (Engineering Undergraduates) new [Places] 13:00 - 14:00 Cambridge University Libraries Online

When using ideas, quotations, diagrams and concepts from other sources in your own academic work you will need to reference them correctly. Referencing is good academic practice and helps your reader understand where particular phrases and ideas in your work are from. Referencing also helps you to avoid plagiarism.

This session will help you to understand why and how to reference other sources, discuss the University's guidance on plagiarism, and show you some useful resources to help with your referencing, including reference managers that can help you keep track of your references from the beginning of a project to the final write-up.
