Further Training Resources

Cambridge Digital Humanities Courses

Cambridge Digital Humanities (CDH) rethinks what humanities can be in an age of pervasive computation. CDH makes use of innovative tools and methods for investigating both traditional and new forms of data and media, in addition to pursuing opportunities to interrogate and reflect on the knowledge and insight that 'the digital' affords.

The Learning Programme helps academic researchers develop skills to critically investigate, develop, exploit and expand new ways of doing humanities and social science research using digital technologies. 

 

 

Cambridge Research Data Management

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 website will guide researchers through various aspects of research data planning and management and will provide assistance in meeting funders’ expectations.

 

 

Public Engagement Training

The University of Cambridge Public Engagement Team provides a portfolio of transferable skill trainings and support for PGR students, researchers and professional staff.

The ‘Engaged Researcher’ training covers all areas of public engagement with research by combining expert led practical workshops and taught sessions. The sessions will give you the support needed to organise, develop, deliver, communicate, publish and evaluate your Public Engagement activities, through creative tools from stand-up comedy, digital engagement to grant writing – find the trainings that match your needs and career profile and combine them into your personal training suite.
