Overview

The University of Edinburgh is introducing a new Postgraduate Certificate, 'Making Use of Digital Research' aimed at commissioners, coordinators and users of digital research in business, policy-making and the third sector, including digital marketing and analytical services officers.

A Virtual Open Day for the course is happening on 28 May at 12:00 and will provide an opportunity to get to know the programme team, course convenor and technologists providing technical support. The programme team are also keen to give detailed practical information about the programme structure and workload to interested potential applicants.

The PGCert comprises a suite of courses that together provide the critical understanding and skills needed to make best use of digital research findings, with a particular focus on social media research, web 2.0 data and their synergies with publicly available ‘open’ administrative datasets. Based on the latest research into the social and economic influences on how digital research is being developed and used, this PGCert is designed both for novices and for more experienced professionals who need to maintain a critical appreciation of the fast moving field of digital research.

The event will make use of online ‘Collaborate’ technology which enables interactive engagemenet with the programme team. After registering, you can log in to the session here.
