Introduction to Research Infrastructures

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

This training module provides an introduction to research infrastructures targeted to the Beginner Level.  Beginner Level assumes only a moderate level of experience with digital humanities, and none with research infrastructures.  Units, videos and lectures are all kept to short, manageable chunks on topics that may be of general interest, but which are presented with an infrastructural twist..  By the end of this module, you should be able to…

  • Understand the elements of common definitions of research infrastructures
  • Be able to discuss the importance of issues such as sustainability and interoperability
  • Understand how research infrastructure supports methods and communities
  • Be aware of some common critiques of digital research infrastructures in the Humanities.

PARTHENOS training provides modules and resources in digital humanities and research infrastructures with the goal of strengthening the cohesion of research in the broad sector of Linguistic Studies, Humanities, Cultural Heritage, History, Archaeology and related fields.  Activities designed to meet this goal will address and provide common solutions to the definition and implementation of joint policies and solutions for the humanities and linguistic data lifecycle, taking into account the specific needs of the sector including the provision of joint training activities and modules on topics related to understanding research infrastructures and mangaging, improving and openin up research and data for both learners and trainers.
