Monday, the MOOC Numérique et recherche en santé et sciences du vivant was launched in Paris on the occasion of Open Access Week 2015. Aimed at French-speaking researchers in health and life sciences, this MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) helps them learn how to use new digital tools in their research and understand the challenges related to new technologies, law, society and ethics.
This MOOC consists of 8 sessions (once a week) and requires 3 to 4 hours of work per week, on average. It represents a great asset for those who want to carry on with a career in academia, as it helps them understand better the issues in research today. Once successfully completed, it can also count as a part of your doctoral education.
Via the weekly videos, 13 speakers give insights on the different themes covered by the MOOC and each session ends with infographics that summarize clearly the main points of the week.
First session: 19 October 2015
Last session: 6 December 2015
Register until: 26 October 2015
