Training Schedule

The following is the schedule as February 2024. This is subject to change, and more training will certainly be added as the Programme proceeds.

Unless otherwise indicated, all training is ‘train-the-trainer’. Attendees are expected to be familiar with the topic, and to use the UKRN training to help them prepare to deliver training at their institution soon afterwards.

Unless otherwise indicated, further information about these training opportunities, and on how to register interest and sign up for them, will be forthcoming shortly.

Teaching Reproducible Research

This workshop is limited to instructors and staff whose institutions are members of the UK Reproducibility Network. It will be delivered in-person over the course of two days in Glasgow.

During the workshop, attendees will create an output (such as a lab exercise or instructions for a reproducible research project) based on principles they learn in the workshop that they can use in their own teaching in the upcoming academic year.

Attendees should have some experience teaching courses involving applied data analysis and/or supervising data-based student research projects, as well as plans to teach such a course again in the near future.
