Join us for this two-part workshop, CQ Open Science Workshop: Trends and Challenges in Open Science Practice Applied to Qualitative Inquiry on March 4 and 11, 2022.
Led by Dr. Katherine Tamminen
Dates and Time: March 4 and March 11, 2022 from 1:00-2:30 PM EDT
Description: Open science and open research practices are becoming required or recommended for researchers across disciplines. Funding agencies, journals, and academic institutions are increasingly implementing guidelines and policies about requirements for researchers to engage in various open research practices, including pre-registering research studies, making data and methods open and available for future re-use, and open-access publications. Some qualitative researchers have engaged with these practices to varying degrees, while others have resisted and remain concerned about open research practices.
This two-part workshop will address practical issues related to engaging in open research practices, and it will also engage participants in a critical discussion about issues and concerns associated with open science in qualitative inquiry.
As a result of participating in this workshop, participants will:
- learn about open research practices such as pre-registration of research studies, open data, open methods, and open-access publications
- learn about requirements and guidelines for open research that are being implemented by funding agencies, publishing organizations, and academic institutions
- gain an understanding of issues associated with engaging in open research practices in qualitative research
- consider the economic, political, and onto-epistemological critiques of open research practices within qualitative inquiry
The workshop will consist of presentations, discussions, and hands-on activities where participants will have the opportunity to work through their own research ideas and consider whether and how to engage in open research practice in their own work. Participants will 1) gain a better understanding of the basic approaches and practices of open science, 2) be able to consider the implications of engaging in open research practices in their own qualitative research studies, and 3) understand the concerns and critiques of open research practices in qualitative inquiry.
Tickets are $20 for students and $40 for professionals.
Spaces are limited. Register here.
