We all have to give presentations at certain points in our lives, whether it’s to a small group of our peers or to a huge gathering at a conference. In this session we will show you how to design and deliver the kind of presentation you want to listen to - one that is engaging, understandable and gives you something to think about when it's all over.

Research data is something that everyone works with, regardless of discipline. From huge data sets to high resolution photographs of artefacts, managing lots of stuff in a way that means you can not only find things but also make sure nothing gets lost accidentally is key to the success of any research project.

In this session we will look at what data actually is, cover good Research Data Management practices, as well as connecting you up with further resources and services to help you even further.

Doing research involves reading a lot of other people's work and trying to figure out how it applies to what you're doing. But how do you manage all of this literature in a way that you can not only keep it organised, but also easily turn what you've read into a handy bibliography, or list of references?

In this session we will look at managing your citations with Zotero. We will explore how this tool allows you to keep on top of what you read online as well as how it can make referencing-induced headaches a thing of the past.
