CDH Basics: Sustaining your data new Finished 09:30 - 10:30 Cambridge Digital Humanities Online

Ensuring long-term access to digital data is often a difficult task: both hardware and code decay much more rapidly than many other means of information storage. Digital data created in the 1980s is frequently unreadable, whereas books and manuscripts written in the 980s are still legible. This session explores good practice in data preservation and software sustainability and looks at what you need to do to ensure that the data you don’t want to keep is destroyed.

  • Data and code sustainability
  • Retention, archiving and re-use
  • Data destruction
  • Recap on the project life-cycle

Social Network Analysis new (6 of 6) Finished 10:00 - 12:00 SSRMP Zoom

Social Network Analysis (SNA) is “a distinct research perspective in the behavioural and social sciences” because it elevates relationships as the primary unit of analysis when attempting to understand and explain social phenomena (Wasserman and Faust, 1994, p. 4). This methods module will introduce you to network research tools used to explore the social constructs that surround all of us, continuously facilitating and frustrating our individual ambitions. Each of our three sessions will focus on a primary component of modern SNA: relational data collection, network visualisation, and descriptive network statistics and modelling. We will use real relational datasets from historical network studies. Participants will also be encouraged to develop their own relational data and complete a basic descriptive analysis and network visualisation of their data. This module will make use of web-based tools and open-source options in the R environment. However, no previous training in SNA methods or R will be assumed by the instructor.

CULP: French Intermediate 2 charged (7 of 15) In progress 10:00 - 12:00 Language Centre, Teaching Room 2

Striking the balance between good writing and following best academic practice through referencing can be a bit of a headache.

We will provide a live demonstration of the reference management tool Zotero to give you an idea of how tools can do some of the heavy lifting for you.

10:30
Supporting People Through Change (Live Online) Finished 10:30 - 12:00 HRTP MS Teams 01

During change we often focus on what will be delivered and if it will be right for the job, but we often focus less on the need to support, reassure, and motivate those impacted by change – the people side of change.

This short session for staff with people-management responsibilities (including PIs, supervisors and team leads) will explore approaches to the people side of change in the context of the University. Whilst high-level sponsorship provides senior leadership and the rationale for change, research shows that direct line managers have the most influence on how their team respond to change by helping to support people in understanding, preparing for, and adopting changes in working life and practice. “Change happens one person at a time.” Prosci.com.

Using the HR Transformation Programme and the introduction of myHR as an example, we will look at how the approaches we are using to support colleagues across the University can be applied to the changes you may be leading in your team or area.

Join us to consider skills and techniques for supporting people through change, using consistent language to help build our individual and collective change capability, for the everyday changes and for the more significant ones.

SCM Staff Yoga Class (In Person Face To Face) new Finished 12:00 - 13:00 Clinical School, Seminar Room 19

Yoga with Daisy Worzencraft is primarily about having fun, giving things a go, and trying - with a sense of humour and a smile on your face! It's a non competitive practice, with modifications for different levels. All she asks is that you try, and that you practice with a sense of pleasure and enjoyment, rather than expectation, frustration and tension.

For Daisy, Yoga has been a consistent friend in her life - especially in times of need - and had nothing to do with perfecting poses!
