Morning Event: Open Science Framework (10:00 am – 12:00 pm)
“Demonstration and Discussion”
Speaker: April Clyburne-Sherin, Center for Open Science
April Clyburne-Sherin is an epidemiologist and research methodologist working to open research through education. She works as the Reproducible Research Evangelist at the Center for Open Science where she conducts workshops on open and reproducible research practices for scientists and students. She will talk about reproducibility of research, open workflows, and The Open Science Framework (OSF), a free, open source web application that connects and supports the research workflow, enabling scientists to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their research.
Lunch 12:00 pm – 1:20 pm
Participants will have lunch on their own. Options include campus dining locations or at another off-campus restaurant (for suggestions).
Please be aware that all these options require a short walk, so participants may want to bring their own lunch.
Afternoon Event: The 3rd Research Data Management Roundtable (1:20 pm – 4:00 pm)
“Data Management Instruction: Teaching One-Shot Workshops”
Topic 1: One-shot Instruction
Topic 2: Sharing anecdotes about your experiences
This is the third in a series of informal roundtable discussions on specific research data management topics. In this Roundtables discussion on one-shot instruction we are expanding to include the sharing of anecdotes about teaching (good, bad, useful, difficult, etc.) and also sharing tools used in teaching (outlines, PowerPoints, exercises, charts or tables, or other useful print or digital objects.) Teaching one-shots are ubiquitous to data management education and offer a plethora of instructive insights and examples! In the first half of the afternoon we will talk in small groups about teaching workshops; then in the second half we will share our experiences and teaching tools with the larger group.
Come with your experiences and bring a tool, handout, presentation, class outlines, or an exercise to showcase!

Both events are sponsored by Boston College and the New England e-Science Program.
We look forward to seeing you all at Boston College, June 8th!
