  9. 9. Taster ToolkitDeveloped by Sciencewise to:• Provide experience of public dialogue to peoplewho are new to the area• Provide training opportunities around facilitationskills.Simulated dialogues:• Based on real dialogue material• Assumes knowledge and skill amongorganisers9
  10. 10. Dialogue Exercise• You will work on actual material discussed bycitizens during the RCUK Open Data Dialogue.• You will have a twenty minute discussion atyour table, facilitated by a table host.• We want to you to discuss how open datashould be applied (if at all) in the scenariopresented.10
  11. 11. discussion ILook at the open data principles on your table.As citizens discuss:•What matters most to you when it comes toopen data?•Try to identify the three or four most importantprinciples for you as a group•Is anything missing from the principles?11
  12. 12. discussion IIYou will see a hypothetical scenario:1. If you had been involved in the originalresearch, how would you feel about your databeing passed on to Puffalot?2. Is it important how the data is used?3. What about timing of release of information?4. What about the costs involved in opening upthe data?12
  13. 13. discussion IIIConsider:• Does the scenario change how you think aboutopen data? If so, how?• Would you choose different principles afterseeing this scenario?13
  14. 14. discussion• What was the experience of a deliberativesmall group discussion like for you?• What did you learn through doing the exercise?• Can you see situations where you could eitheruse dialogue or the toolkit?14
