Research Institute for Business (RIB) held a new round of WRDS Training Workshops for all HSMC students on 13 and 16 February 2017. Three training sessions were arranged.
In order to cater for students’ individual needs, the training emphasized the hands-on experience. Soon after the facilitator introduced the fundamental functions of one of WRDS databases through lectures and demonstrations, the participants deepened their learning by practicing and by asking the helpers or staff around for assistance whenever necessary.
While the twelve participants were engaged deeply in the exercises, they reflected on the use of WRDS in their studies and asked questions. The message, “accessing 11 useful databases through a simple login to WRDS” should have been well illustrated in the training.
