Vitae in partnership with The British Library has run Digital Researcher for the past 3 years. An innovative, thought-provoking one day event, Digital Researcher aims to help researchers make the most of new technologies and social media tools in their research.
Designed for both postgraduate researchers and research staff within any UK institution, this interactive event was held at the British Library on Monday 20th February 2012, and provided an opportunity for researchers to think about how they undertake research and to consider whether new technologies could improve their research.
The day included discussion of a range of new technologies and tools (microblogging, RSS feeds, social networking and social citation sharing) with the focus being on how these can be used to enhance research. Vitae were also very pleased to have Martin Weller (Professor of Educational Technology at the Open University & author of the 'Digital Scholar' book) attend as keynote speaker.
The Vitae Digital Researcher series of events have previously had a high volume of demand. To register an interest in attending future Digital Researcher events, please complete the register your interest form.
The event is free for all UK-based researchers and open to postgraduate researchers and research staff.
