classes, group work and discussion workshops how digital technologies
facilitate, enhance and change scholarly practices and knowledge production. You
will become familiar with established and emerging methods for data modelling,
data mining and text analytics and you will get hands-on experience in working
with linked open data, digital tools for reproducible research and platforms for
sharing research and teaching resources. Furthermore, you will learn how to use
network analysis, social media and virtual ethnography to advance your scholarly
work and will reflect upon ethical and legal issues in digital research.

Learning outcomes:
By the end of the training school, you will:
• understand the benefits and challenges in using different methods and tools
for digital scholarship
• evaluate and use a variety of appropriate models and methods for data
modelling, data mining and text analytics
• identify, select and use appropriate platforms for sharing research and
teaching resources
• use digital tools and methods to extract, analyse, present and interpret
information for the production of scholarly knowledge
• recognize the advantages of reproducible research and take advantage of
currently available methods for performing and publishing data analyses in a
reproducible manner
• critically reflect upon the legal and ethical issues of digital research
