Instructional Technology assists faculty with technology needed for research and research related projects. Please get in touch early in your planning process.
“Technology Resources for Conducting Research
Information Technology Services provides access to software packages and computing resources for faculty and students to conduct research. Suffolk University negotiates licensing agreements with companies and makes software, databases, and tools available to users for academic purposes. While most licenses and subscriptions are available for the office computer only, some may be accessed in student computer labs, the Sawyer Business School Trading and Financial Center in Sawyer 5th, or remotely. Licenses may be available campus-wide, school-wide, or individually. A full list of applications, how they can be accessed and related training resources can be found on our self-service, online Knowledge Base at https://wikis.suffolk.edu/display/ITS/Home. Click on the software title to get more details.
We also provide access to the CARMA Consortium Webcast Program. The Center for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) provides outstanding research methods lectures by a very distinguished set of presenters. CARMA is a non-profit center within the School of Business Administration at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. Suffolk University has been a member for the past 10+ years. Our membership includes three access points for each live webcast, but there is no limit as to how many faculty and/or students may view the webcast from the class-room with the access point. Recorded versions of the lectures will also be posted on the CARMA website within a couple of days after each lecture is given.
We offer periodic on-site or online training programs for all of the research software/databases available on campus. These training programs will be led by the software vendors themselves as we currently have no in-house experts. If you are interested, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know which software package training you would like to attend and we can coordinate with the vendors. These sessions will also give you an opportunity to ask advanced questions about the software packages that will hopefully help in your research endeavors & projects.”
