MOOC: Transparent and Open Social Science – Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences
lterrat's bookmarks 2017-06-10
"Transparent and Open Social Science Research is based on Professor Ted Miguel‘s UC Berkeley course on methods for transparent research. He and Project Scientist Garret Christensen lead the online version. They will be online to answer your questions and facilitate discussions.
In addition to providing a solid theoretical foundation and extensive reading list for researchers looking to make their research more transparent, the course also gives opportunities for hands-on practice with tools like p-curve and the Open Science Framework (OSF). The topics we cover include:
- An overview of the Reproducibility Crisis and the Open Science movement
- Publication Bias
- Pre-registration and Pre-analysis Plans
- Open Data
- Data Visualization
- The future of Open Science
This course is hosted by FutureLearn, a platform that uses a social learning model to better engage online learners. This means that, rather than having discussions in forums, learners can start a discussion at any point in the course, just like in a physical classroom."
