Research Training Week – Warrnambool program

Monday 26 August

9.30am–3.30pm Introduction to Programming with R

R is quickly gaining popularity as a programming language of choice for statisticians, data scientists and researchers. It has an excellent ecosystem including the powerful RStudio development environment and the Shiny web application framework.

But getting started with R can be challenging, particularly if you’ve never programmed before. That’s where this introductory course comes in.

eResearch analyst Jerry Lai will draw on his extensive experience in data gathering and statistics management software to present this practical workshop. You will learn to write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation (

Tuesday 27 August    

10am–12pm Research Data Management Tools @ Deakin

The session is specifically for academic supervisors and research students who would like to learn about the Research Data Management (RDM) tools at Deakin.

Bec Muir, Warrnambool Campus and Liaison Librarian, will provide a brief 15-30 minutes overview of the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2018) and the Deakin Research Data and Primary Materials Management procedure. She will also outline what information should be in an RDM plan.

Dr Jerry Lai from Deakin eResearch will demonstrate how to access the Research Data Store (RDS) and create an RDS collection, as well as various aspects of Syncplicity and how it is related to RDS.

Dr Christopher McAvaney, Director Deakin eResearch, will provide a brief demonstration of Deakin’s Research Data Footprints, a platform for creating metadata and RDM plans for Deakin projects.

1–4pm Researcher Drop-In

Drop in to discuss your questions with one of our expert librarians or researchers.

Wednesday 28 August          

1–2.30pm Developing programming thought with Scratch

The ability to code is an important part of digital literacy. However, transitioning to program or coding thought requires the ability to break down each step in a sequence – completing each action prior to beginning a new step.

Scratch is a block-based visual programming language that can be used to start building programming and sequence thought. Scratch can be used to program robots, create interactive stories or develop games.

This session provides a foundation for future coding by introducing the concept of block-based programming in an easy to use and understand interface.

Thursday 29 August  

10–11am Getting started with your systematic search                    

Systematic searching is the art of organising, translating and performing your search across databases in a pre-planned and structured way. It requires a range of skills and abilities. This includes knowing where to look to find information, how to develop your search questions and where to search.

This session is part of the systematic review suite run by the Health Liaison Librarian Team. It is open to all faculties.

11.30am–12.30pm Text mining for systematic search        

Learn how to ramp up your precision searching skills in this session. You will learn how to use text mining tools to improve the quality of your searches.

Please bring at least two Gold Standard articles (articles that you would expect to appear in a systematic search that you may run) to this session.

2–3.30pm Code to the Node with NVivo

NVivo provides a powerful way of managing and coding your qualitative research data. It provides a comprehensive overview of your dataset and imported files to help manage your data and draw out themes and content.

This session provides an introduction to using NVivo to code your qualitative data in two ways – Code to the Node and InVivo coding. The content is aimed at beginners who have only just started to use NVivo, or who are interested in learning more about how the program can be used for thematic analysis. This session does not replace the comprehensive NVivo introduction sessions offered by faculties and is a standalone session.
