Fostering Open Science to Research Using a Taxonomy and an eLearning Portal

  1. 1. Facilitating Open Science Training in European Research Fostering Open Science to Research Using a Taxonomy and an eLearning Portal Nancy Pontika, Petr Knoth, Matteo Cancellieri, Samuel Pearce CORE, Open University (UK) iKnow: 15th International Conference on Knowledge Technologies and Data-Driven Business Graz, 21 – 22 October 2015
  2. 2. Open Science context Open Science is situated within a context of ever greater transparency, accessibility and accountability. The impetus for Openness in research comes from two directions: Ground-up – OA began in the High Energy Physics research community, which saw benefit in not waiting for publication before sharing research findings (and data / code) Top-down – Government/funder support, increasing public and commercial engagement with research The main goals of these developments are to lower barriers to accessing the outputs of publicly funded research (or ‘science’ for short), to speed up the research process, and to strengthen the quality, integrity and longevity of the scholarly record

  4. 4. FOSTER project: general objectives • Support different stakeholders, especially young researchers, in adopting open access in the context of the European Research Area (ERA) and in complying with the open access policies and rules of participation set out for Horizon 2020; • Integrate open access principles and practice in the current research workflow by targeting the young researcher training environment; • Strengthen the institutional training capacity to foster compliance with the open access policies of the ERA and Horizon 2020 (beyond the FOSTER project); • Facilitate the adoption, reinforcement and implementation of open access policies from other European funders, in line with the EC’s recommendation.

  9. 9. Why an eLearning platform? • Technology allows online knowledge sharing • Adoption of educational and learning methods • Open Educational Resources (OERs) • Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) • Combination of learning activities • Reaching globaly a wide number of learners Currently Open Science is mainly taught face to face – now an elearning course using material with open licenses and attracting participants from all over the world is being implemented.
  10. 10. Courses quality : issues considered • Andragogy • Self-learning and moderated courses • Rapid learning • Learning objectives • Granularity • Content vs communication
  11. 11. Courses quality : evaluation • Diagnostic evaluation • Is done at the beginning of the course to define the learning path • Continuous evaluation • The evaluation done during the course • Final evaluation • At the end of the learning process • Will provide a certification (formal or informal)
  12. 12. Courses quality : course objects • Forum • Lessons • Contents • Quizzes • Certificates/ Badges

  15. 15. Open Science Taxonomy: topics overview The topics overview can be found at https://www.fosteropenscience.eu/topics/overview
  16. 16. Complementary taxonomies
  17. 17. Open Science Taxonomy: issues Problems: • Number of hierarchies • Terminology • Terms organisation • Level of depth for each term Solutions: • Regular meetings after each taxonomy version • Separate hierachies, rather than use them in parallel • Three level depth • All “children” terms corresponded to “parent” terms
