Free Open Science TRAINING e-courses (FOSTER)
FOSTER Open Science toolkit (release: November 2018)
How do you put Open Science into practice? Take a look at these free Open Science courses that provide focused, practical and relevant, discipline-specific examples to answer some of the burning questions researchers have.
The courses include practical tips on getting started with Open Science (OS) as well as providing information on discipline specific tools and resources you can use. There is no specified order through the courses – just explore topics that you want to learn more about at your own pace.
These e-learning modules have been developed reusing openly available content produced by a range of content providers including DataOne, Research Data Netherlands, Open Data Institute, European Data Portal, Digital Curation Centre, UK Data Service, CESSDA, DARIAH, ELIXIR, Software Sustainability Institute, FOSTER and many others actively developing open educational resources relating to Open Science.
These courses answer some of the most common questions you might have about putting OS into practice. Each course takes about 1-2 hours to work through and you’ll receive a badge upon completion.
