The EnCouRage Committee is proud to present the second part of the fourth EnCouRage Workshop.
ECR workshops are conducted by expert ECRs who are willing to help you with techniques that you may want to improve in, or apply in your research. This fourth workshop focuses on Machine learning, and will be led by Dr. William Redmond from Department of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine and Human Sciences. The purpose of the workshop is to introduce new machine-learning techniques to data-mine potential biomarkers, cluster responses to visual stimulations, or predict patient cancer stage from a blood test.

The EnCouRage Workshop Team
We are very excited to have scheduled a workshop and Q&A session with some of our mega-active academics (not only on twitter!).
We invite you to come along next Tuesday, May 22 from 3-4pm to this workshop that will be accompanied by cheese and nibbles and some drinks.
Location: 75 Talavera Road, Level 3, Meeting Room 3.01
In this workshop, Dr Sarah White will introduce using Twitter for academics. Based on personal experience as well as engagement with social media students over the past year, Sarah will take you through setting up your Twitter account, how to create effective posts, and how to create infographics. This short presentation will be followed by an open discussion with a panel of some of FMHS most regular tweeters: Dr Jen Rowland, Dr Maria Dahm, and A/Prof Adam Dunn.
We look forward to seeing you next Tuesday.
Your Encourage Team
What a great day,
We had our statistics workshop held at the FMHS.
This third workshop focused on Statistics, and was led by Dr. Nasir Wabe from the Centre for Health Systems and Safety Research, Australian Institute of Health Innovation.
The workshop provided an understanding of the basic theoretical information and examples of statistical tests. Followed by a morning tea it was a great chance to discuss the topics around this issue and get an expert opinion, thanks Nasir!
The next one will be held on May 10th!
