By researchers, for researchers: promote discussions on scholarly communication at academic conferences
Limited Capacity seats available

To get more researchers involved in discussions around scholarly communication, Open Access, Open Science and publication culture, this workshop aims to come up with an actionable plan to get these discussion on the agenda at field-specific academic conferences. Three key areas of intersection with researchers' interests are: a) dissemination and outreach, b) funding and mandates and c) reproducibility.

We will identify what’s currently already happening in these areas at bigger and smaller conferences (like SfN), talk about best practices to facilitate these discussions (e.g. to get tracks/sessions scheduled), and, inspired in part by the Software/Data Carpentry curriculum and the Mozilla Science Lab training program, explore some sort of blueprint for proposals, with a roster of people in various disciplines who would be willing to participate.

We are especially inviting researchers (in all disciplines) to participate in this workshop. Tell us what you would like to see happen at conferences in your field, and let’s work together to make that a reality!

Prior to the workshop, we are crowdsourcing peoples experiences at the various conferences they attend, through this Google Sheet:

Talk to me about what's on your mind ;-) You can ask me anything about Open Science, the 101 Innovations in scholarly communications survey and project, research tools, the Force11 scholarly commons working group and of course photography, cycling and the absurd.

Making scholarly communication truly open and participatory is not (just) about agreeing on definitions. It's about people and practices, about providing good infrastructure to carry out and disseminate research, and supporting people in the choices they make as they shape their workflow... Read More →

Couture Curricula - BD2K Data Science Tailored to Your Needs
Limited Capacity seats available

Data science - studying the creation, use, and sharing of data in research - plays a role in many professional activities. Librarians, researchers, students, and publishers alike are looking to leverage new data science techniques and technologies in a wide variety of contexts.

To address the growing need for flexible and effective data science education in diverse settings, we have assembled a set of 32 Open Educational Resource (OER) data science modules. To help people realize the potential of big data, we aim to provide flexible training modules that cover the major topics in data science that include problem description, data set discovery, preparation and creation of data sets, implementation of analytic techniques, ethics, and effective communication. The OER modules include a diverse set of learning materials, including slide decks, video tutorials, interactive exercises, and recommended readings and resources.

This workshop will enable participants to chart their own course through the 32 modules and to effectively use the OERs for their own discipline and organization. Hands on development activities will engage participants through the identification of their audience, defining their learning objectives, mapping the OER curricula, and customizing the curricula for their specific use scenario.
