Computer Science Essentials for Digital Humanities
The course consists of five online modules that introduce students to some basic concepts and essentials of computer science such as cryptography, steganography, accessibility, databases and user experience, followed by a practical experience with working on digital historical databases. It will be followed by a hands-on workshop at the premises of Fondazione 1563 in Torino, presenting case studies from the foundation.
Storytelling Workshop – Part II
The workshop aims to provide PhD students with the knowledge and professional skills in terms of public speaking, digital communication - with a particular focus on social media, and on LinkedIn specifically - and storytelling, with the ultimate aim of providing them with the right tools to tell something about themselves and their research in different contexts (academic and non-academic) in a dynamic and engaging way, accessible to the general public and to a potential employer.
Intellectual property rights and assets management in the life sciences
The aim of this course is to raise awareness and understanding of intellectual property rights among early career stage researchers who are the professionals of tomorrow. Yet, the course is recommended for researchers at all career stages, and scientific support and management support personnel interested in this topic.
Scientific communication for scientists
A doctoral studies course, intended for everyone that would like to learn how to use social media for research purposes, as well as for distribution and popularization of their scientific work and findings. The course would be in the form of practical advice and it will provide know-how that can directly be applied and put in practice in real-life examples. Every class would be recorded and then made available in video format. The video classes will be available to PhD students who have an interest in the topic discussed in the class and who aren’t able to attend the class in real-time.
