ResBaz Brisbane: Tinker Presentation

Published by Tyne Sumner on

On Wednesday the 10th of July, the Brisbane HASS DEVL Team headed to ResBaz Brisbane, hosted at The Cube at QUT Gardens Point Campus. The event was an excellent opportunity to network cross institutionally with like-minded researchers, attend fantastic talks, play games, view the interactive posters, and soak up the technology on display in the space. 

Ben McRae (Griffith University), and Katy McHugh (University of Queensland) presented the Tinker Workbench to a varied audience including AARnet’s Dr Sara King, and discussed options for integrating the tools into Humanities classrooms. 

After exploring the HASS Virtual Lab, and the partners who make it possible, participants were introduced to the Tinker Workbench and the vast array of materials available. Several scenario based workflows were explained, and the Jupyter Notebooks available on the Tinker Studio were demonstrated.  

The team were also lucky enough to have representatives from the QUT Digital Observatory make an appearance and show off their own Jupyter notebooks, presenting an advanced alternative to the introductory nature of the Tinker workbench, which exists as an entry point to digital research and tools.
