MOOC Numérique et recherche en santé et sciences du vivant : nouvelles pratiques et enjeux

About the course

This MOOC aims to provide necessary elements to adapt to the evolution of practices in health research (from management to communication or scientific resources dissemination) and teaches how to master digital tools. It also aims to make participants understand new technological, social, legal and ethical challenges such as the open access to scientific publications, scientific data sharing and changes in methodology that the digital compound can introduce in research practices (data driven research, participative research).

Format

Seven-week course. Each week consists in videos, quizzes and weekly exercises. Each sequence includes experts from different backgrounds (researchers, research engineers, librarians, doctors, legal advisers, etc. to shed light on the challenges of those new practices. Screen casts offer feedback from researchers and allow the discovery of a set of open source digital tools used in research (R software, Zotero, Github, Python).
