I wanted to share this pre-call for potential authors to a collaboratively
author a handbook on Open Science training written by trainers for
trainers. The call will go out more widely via the FOSTER website in
September but I wanted to share it with members of this group in advance.
The dates are still be finalised but it will likely take place the first or
second week of February in Hanover, Germany. If you have any questions,
please contact Helen Brinken (cc’d).
All the best,
Call to Open Science trainers – share your experiences and help to write a
Next February FOSTER will bring together Open Science trainers and
educators to collaboratively author a training handbook. If you have
practical experience in implementing Open Science training at your
organisation we’d love to hear from you.
What works, what doesn’t? How can you make the most of limited resources?
With your help, we will create a handbook that equips future trainers with
methods, instructions, exemplary training outlines and inspiration for
their own Open Science trainings. The handbook will provide Open Science
advocates across the globe with practical know-how to deliver Open Science
principles to researchers and support staff.
The handbook will be produced in a book sprint. You never have heard of
that? This format will ensure a workshop environment in which a team of
about 10 authors creates a finished book in four days collaboratively.
Sounds crazy? Maybe, but let’s go for it! Join our writing adventure: Ten
authors. Four days. One book.
We are looking for people from diverse scientific backgrounds, with Open
Science expertise (from general to discipline specific) and experience in
developing and delivering Open Science training.
So, if you would like to share your experiences and are motivated to be
part of our team writing a handbook in just a few days, please apply using
the form available at: https://goo.gl/forms/G6wwKMtKpuA00O9W2
We will need information about your scientific background, your area of
Open Science expertise, your training experience and of course your
motivation to participate in our extraordinary writing adventure.
The book sprint will take place in Germany. Your travel expenses will be
co-funded by FOSTER.
The call for expressions of interests will be open until Sunday, 1 October
2017. You will hear from us by late October 2017.
If you have any questions or need clarifications, please contact Helene
