Training: Its better together
presentationposted on 10.03.2020, 03:48 by Megan Guidry
New Zealand eScience Infrastructure (NeSI) provides expertise and capability to researchers conducting computation and data intensive research in New Zealand. Within the training sector, our core purpose is to raise the computational capability of New Zealand research and, in turn, shrink the existing eResearch skills gap. To do this, however, we rely heavily on healthy partnerships with various organizations throughout the country.
In this presentation, we will discuss our training efforts so far (both in terms of delivering training, but also cultivating the New Zealand training community) and reflect on the scale of the opportunity/challenge that we face. Ideally, this talk will be a conversation starter on how we, as a community of busy and passionate eResearch enthusiasts, can continue to improve processes and share knowledge more freely.
Ultimately, training needs to be useful and relevant to those who need it. NeSI strives to be agile in it’s approach to training delivery and this presentation will conclude by noting what we are doing today to ensure our efforts are increasingly measurable, scalable, and community-focused.
