File and data management – WW2022


File and data management – a 45 minute workshop on 11 May 2022 from 1230pm


As a PhD student, and then as an academic, there are two things you’ll need to manage – files and data. Everyone seems to grow up with their own system. Often it is a bit of a mix and match. Things you learned through trial and error. Something someone once said. A system the university forced you to use.

No more!

Let’s use one approach. Consistently. It’ll save time. Money. Effort. Energy. Mental capacity.

And, I’ll cover the approach in this workshop. Of course, I am not closed off to new or different ideas. So, bring your approaches and we can grow and learn together.

  • brand new PhD students wanting to implement a (near) perfect system from the start
  • EMCRs sick of using FINAL, FINAL FINAL, or FINAL SUBMITTED FINAL in document names and still not knowing what was THE document that was sent

  • Administrators who manage files and data on behalf of others
