Outside of the open communities, few people know how to apply “open” tools, practices, and standards to their work. Many struggle to ‘wrangle’ data, whether for work or pleasure. Creative Commons, P2PU, and the OKFN will introduce the School of Open and the School of Data, followed by a Q&A and a hands-on, creative workshop to prototype “open” challenges and courses. Particpants will take the "Teach someone something with open content" challenge in an offline, small group setting, and translate that learning into designing an effective challenge in their "open" area of interest as it relates to culture, education, research, or data. Challenges may be anything from “Copyright for educators” to “How to get your journal to be Open Access” to “Using (open) data to prove your point”. There will also be a chance to play-test School of Data materials and even build your own.
A lunch break is included from 12:30-13:30.
Additional activities may include:
- Play testing existing School of Data and School of Open courses
- Writing recipes for the Data Wrangling Handbook
- Playing with data, and writing about it for the School of Data blog
- Providing feedback on core School of Open documents
- Identifying the skills, and potential badges, for your course by taking the P2PU Badge Maker challenge
