Nearly every part of the research process can benefit from digital advances. This webinar training series introduces health researchers to digital approaches and tools relevant to their research. We will cover a wide range of topics, such as recruiting study participants online, using digital tools to improve a systematic review study, accelerating the dissemination of research results, and launching a crowdfunding campaign. The series is designed to address a gap in the current training of health sciences researchers and to increase the number of scientists at all career stages who are comfortable enhancing their research workflows with new digital approaches — to be more effective and efficient.
The webinars will be open to all and free of charge. All webinars will be accessible afterward on the Digital Scholar Program page.
