  • Updated

The Research Support team provides several types of live virtual events for researchers with different support needs, ranging from introductory to advanced users. Descriptions of these events are listed below, along with information about their intended audience. Event dates can be found in our All of Us calendar.

Please let us know if you have any ideas or suggestions about future Office Hour topics.

 

Tuesday Drop-in Q + A Office Hours

Overview: These sessions are hosted by our Help Desk team to provide opportunities for registered Workbench researchers to have their questions answered in real time by our Research Support and Data Science Teams. Questions can be simple or very specific, and we try to answer them on a first come, first serve basis. Ideally, users will have relevant workspaces and notebooks running before joining the meeting. These meetings aren’t recorded to protect researcher and participant privacy.

Time and Dates: 1 - 2 pm CT weekly on Tuesdays. Click here for our calendar schedule. Since these are meant for registered users, Zoom links are not publicly released and are shared via emails to active users. Alternatively, please contact us and we will provide the link once we verify you've completed the required training and signed the Data User Code of Conduct.

Target Audience: Users of any experience level, ranging from none to high.
