RES Hub physical

Kaltura

Research Excellence and Support Hub (RES Hub) is a new physical space on level 5 of UTS Central (Buildings 1 and 2) for the research community to collaborate, network and learn.

RES Hub physical has a 36-seat event space (20-seat capacity at the moment due to COVID-19 restrictions) that can be used for professional development events, seminars, and forums, supported by state-of-the-art audio-visual technology. The RES Hub event space is located in CB01.05.007.

Complementing this are working spaces and a terrace where you can relax and network. We also have a dedicated collaboration room for virtual meetings, where researchers will be able to conduct collaborative Zoom calls. We plan to add a one-stop video recording studio to support the promotion of our research at UTS. This part of RES Hub is located in CB02.05.250.

We are launching RES Hub Physical with a week of exciting events for the research community from Monday, 3rd May. Please see the program of events and register for the sessions below.

Clock icon02:30PM - 03:45PM

Target Audience: Anyone interested in Indigenous research

There is increasing pressure for researchers and policy makers to ‘meaningfully engage’ with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities in any practices involving ‘Indigenous data’ (e.g., The AIATSIS Code of Ethics – 2020; United Nations Declaration for the Right of Indigenous Peoples – 2007). Whilst Indigenous peoples have too often been isolated from the language, control and production of data at community, state and national levels, the emergence of Indigenous Data Sovereignty movements around the globe has seen research ‘engagement’ with Indigenous peoples shift drastically from passive participation to active Indigenous governance. From the lenses' of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scholars, this symposium will focus on some of the more recent advances in Indigenous Data Sovereignty.

Clock icon09:30AM - 10:30AM

Target Audience: Researchers, HDR students

This online module is designed for researchers to develop interactive visualisation to gain insights on research communities using a network visualisation tool called VOSviewer. Use the tool to explore your own network and networks of researchers and institutions, grants and publications, and research area of interest. These networks could assist in discovering connections, research areas, demonstrate quality of team or an individual as part of grant application, support mentoring PhDs and ECRs to illustrate career trajectories, and benchmark your research network or of a centre with others.

Session highlights:

  • Use case from researcher on using network maps as part of grant application
  • Demonstration of VOSviewer to generate network map(s) based on bibliographic and text data

Do you collaborate with people outside your (broader) academic discipline? How about with industry? With all those collaborators, do you also follow a structured approach to exploring complex problem spaces and co-create solutions? You might already be doing transdisciplinary (TD) research. Perhaps you’re on the cusp of it, or even at its frontiers. This session explains what TD research is, as distinct from multi- or cross-disciplinary research, and how it emphasises engagement and impact with end-users.

Join us for an interactive quiz session to understand in more detail what the University's expectations are around Research Data Management (RDM) and your responsibilities. Through this multiple choice quiz we will bust myths and common misconceptions around policy, technology and process. There will be opportunities for Q & A so that you can find out what all the hype is around RDM and leave any doubt behind. You will leave with the knowledge on how you can make small changes in your research journey to improve your own RDM practices, and meet the University's requirements. A prize will be awarded to the person with the most correct answers.
