First Open Science Train the Trainer Bootcamp

May 30, 2022

Today’s research support staff and other intermediaries need to adapt further to the ever-changing RDM, Open Science and Open Access landscape. With this in mind, we present our 2022 online Bootcamp focusing on “21st-century scholarly communication” to provide training for these individuals who want to train researchers and students.

This is an intermediate level Bootcamp, and we will assume some basic knowledge of the state-of-the-art.

Our learning objectives will be to:

  • Understand at an intermediate and advanced level Open Science, open data, DMPs, OA publishing, IPR, Horizon Europe requirements, OpenAIRE services, and EOSC.
  • Understand how to communicate and teach (pedagogy) these topics to researchers and students, and other stakeholders.
  • Know how to use some tools and software that enable best practices in open science.
  • Become confident and better equipped in being able to deal with difficult questions.

Another aim of this Bootcamp will be to provide a forum in which a network can be established and nurtured, and which will have long-term benefits. We will accept 30 applicants who will be taken on an intensive 5 half-day course where learners will be encouraged to communicate and collaborate with their fellow learners, during the course and beyond!

Who should attend?

We are looking for librarians, research support staff and other professional stakeholders who are planning to deliver open science training to researchers and students. We expect you to be aware of Research Data management topics and have an intermediate knowledge of Open Access publishing related topics.

 Evaluation Criteria

  2. Previous experience as a trainer, particularly on topics related to Open Science- 50%.

Additional weighting criteria:

Will there be any expenses?

This course will be free, however, participants are expected to commit 5 half-days for the duration of the course.
