UPDATE: Research in Digital Times: Planning, Collecting and Storing Your Data

In light of the Vice Chancellor's recent announcement, the DLS team will not be holding face-to-face presentations as part of their Learning Lunches series, until further notice.

They will be emailing those who have already registered and stopping online registrations.  They are also looking at ways of making their training materials more easily accessible online.  Currently, they are all available on the Open Science Framework (OSF) page - click here: https://osf.io/5avhm/ DLS will also be updating the platform with their slides for the upcoming lectures, as well as exploring how they can effectively deliver the material remotely.
