We Are a 'People Infrastructure' and Training is Crucial to That
In this video, Laurent Romary gives his perspective on training and education in research infrastructures. He reveals how his engineering background taught him precision in analysing computer concepts, and how this has impacted on his role in a humanities research infrastructure. He proceeds to focus on DARIAH’s role as a ‘people infrastructure’ and the importance of training in that. He considers the importance of adaptability of training to learners from differents scholarly communities and competence levels.
This is part of a series entitled ‘What is the Role of Training and Education in Research Infrastructures?‘. DARIAH Director Toma Tasovac spoke to fellow DARIAHns and colleagues from prospective DARIAH countries about their own educational backgrounds and the role of training and education in digital research infrastructures. The interviews show that there is no single educational trajectory which produces DH scholars. The diversity of our backgrounds is one of the main strengths of our field.
