A few weeks ago I was asked to give a short presentation to my department about my research. My slides are below, both as a slideshare and also as a PDF with commentary notes.
The presentation gives a brief overview of why data sharing is important, why we need to study it, some of what we’ve learned, and what we still don’t know. Spoiler: it concludes with an encouragement to share your own research data.
Two process questions:
1. Does anyone know of a better way to share slide spoken content, other than “PDF with notes”? I don’t *want* my slides to include everything I say, because that makes for a boring presentation in real life. But how else to communicate the information when archiving? Slideshare does allow voice-over, but frankly that raises the barrier of entry for me (record a podcast, aack). Any other ideas?
2. Any open clip art sources, other than http://www.openclipart.org/ and http://www.wpclipart.com/ ? These have lots of things, but unfort still don’t rival the variety that comes with PowerPoint. I looked, but there just didn’t include the right hats. So the presentation includes Microsoft clipart. Guessing that means I can’t make those images CC. Guessing that means I can’t post the presentation on Nature Precedings. Oh well, small steps.
