JTC: Language Study Group - Summer Season new (6 of 10) In progress 16:30 - 18:00 John Trim Centre

Do you need a date in your diary to keep your language study ticking over?

Many language learners are in the same boat. We need to fill a hungry gap between courses, begin tackling an academic article in another language, prepare to speak to friends or family abroad, or maybe study a lesser-known language for fieldwork... Whatever your goal for your language learning, you will need to execute your plan.

A weekly commitment can help focus the mind! If this applies to you, join this informal, supportive and adventurous study group. Make yourself at home in our learning centre and press on with what you need to do, alongside other learners and with support from Emma, a language learning adviser, interested in talking to you about your learning strategies. Receive weekly reminders to keep you on track.

This is a little melting pot: open to learners of any language, in a learning centre with resources for 170.

Tea and quality biscuits are on hand for whenever you want to take a break!

If the course is in progress, registering your interest equals booking a place.

Reality Alert for Managers…

There will always be too much to do within the time available! We cannot manage time, but we can manage ourselves and our workload within the time we do have. The trick is to get better at your P.I.E. management!

Most managers would like to organise themselves more effectively whilst helping their team to develop and achieve more. This, in turn, can help to reduce stress levels and enhance the feeling of wellbeing.

Introduction to RNA-seq data analysis (1 of 3) [Full] 09:30 - 17:30 Bioinformatics Training Room, Craik-Marshall Building, Downing Site

The aim of this course is to familiarize the participants with the primary analysis of RNA-seq data.

Next, we will present the alignment step, quantification of expression and differential expression analysis.

Please note that if you are not eligible for a University of Cambridge Raven account you will need to book or register your interest by linking here.

Many managers attempt to ‘project manage’ their way through change, deal with uncertainty when it happens or try and ignore it altogether. Such managers then seem surprised by the backlash and resistance they get from their staff! Most managers would like change to be easier and less time consuming. Most managers would like to plan effectively even in times of uncertainty.

This workshop will give you a range of practical and thought-provoking tools, tips and techniques to help you lead and facilitate changes more effectively

10:00
Effective strategies for managing your research data (beginners session) [Full] 10:00 - 12:00 8 Mill Lane, Lecture Room 5

What would happen to your research data if your lab exploded, or your laptop was stolen, or your cloud storage account was hacked? How could you prevent data loss in these situations? Managing your data effectively is vital to help you do this.

This workshop will introduce the basic principles of Research Data Management (RDM) and how they are relevant throughout the research life cycle.

Intended for those who are new to RDM, this course will firstly explain what RDM is, and then go on to cover basic data back-up and storage options, file sharing tools, and strategies for organising your data, as well as providing guidance on managing personal or sensitive data. You will also learn about the range of support services available to you within the University for managing your data.

If you already have a basic understanding of RDM then the advanced course is probably more appropriate for you to attend.
