Welcome to Tinker

Tinker is the newest addition to the Australian research infrastructure landscape. It is an online environment designed for the discovery and exploration of digital methods, tools, data, and training for researchers in the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS).

Tinker has emerged out of a collective recognition of the need for a national approach towards digital HASS skills and training in Australia. One of its key aims is to better the capacity of researchers to engage with digital tools and methods to address research questions in the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.

The Tinker environment will provide direct access to a range of advanced tools and research data repositories. With the release of the Tinker.edu.au prototype, the project team is currently seeking feedback from the HASS community on the needs and capacities for digital HASS work in an online space.

Please contact Greg D’Arcy (gregory.darcy@unimelb.edu.au) if you have direct feedback on the website, or would like to be involved in planned user testing scheduled for early 2019.
