WEBINARS FOR EDUCATORS AND HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

  • Using the Open Science Framework to Enhance Your Research Projects.
  • About this Event:
    Keeping data and research materials organized across all phases of the research process is always a challenging process. To help the research community address these challenges, the Center for Open Science developed the Open Science Framework (OSF), a research tool that supports collaboration, data management, and transparency throughout the research lifecycle. The OSF provides avenues for researchers to design a study; collect, analyze, and store data; manage collaborators; and publish research materials. In this webinar, attendees will learn about the many features of the OSF and develop strategies for using the tool within the context of their own research projects. The discussion will be framed around how to best utilize the OSF while also implementing data management and open science best practices.
    Speaker:
    Kevin Read, MLIS, MAS is a health sciences librarian at the University of Saskatchewan. He has been providing data services in health sciences libraries for the past 8 years in both Canada and the U.S. He is the current Chair of the Portage Network’s Data Discovery Expert Group, and is in the process of conducting research on how Canadian-funded researchers describe and share their data.

  • The Future of International Collaboration and Academic Partnerships, in collaboration with Boston College’s Center for International Higher Education.

  • Session Dates:
    ☻12 Nov. | 2:30pm - 4pm CET (Paris time, GMT+1): THE FUTURE OF INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION AND ACADEMIC PARTNERSHIPS
    During this webinar panelists will discuss how international collaboration and academic partnerships have changed in the context of the disruption due to COVID-19 and how it might evolve in the future. We will explore the impact of travel restrictions - will they trigger increased collaboration within regions and with neighbor countries or will the increased development of online/virtual cooperation weaken the regional partnerships to the benefit of collaboration at global scale instead? Higher education experts from different regions of the world will share their views and analysis of the situation.
    - Chair: Hans de Wit, Director, Boston College’s Center for International Higher Education
    - Panelists: Orla Quinlan, President, International Education Association of South Africa
    ☻17 Nov. | 2:30pm - 4pm CET (Paris time, GMT+1): DIGITAL DIMENSION: NO ACCESS! - IN A DIGITAL WORLD
    The first two sessions of the series on the Future of Higher Education - Digital Dimension addressed lessons learnt in terms of teaching and learning, and discussed potential innovations moving beyond the pandemic. However, the lockdown experience has also been a magnifying glass for inequalities and digital divides.
    The IAU Global report on the impact of Covid-19 on higher education demonstrated inequalities between universities - some already had the appropriate infrastructures in place prior to the pandemic and could shift fully online in an easier manner. Other institutions do not own the necessary infrastructures. In some cases teachers and students do not have access to the devices needed and to a proper internet connection from their home.
    During this webinar experts will explore how this unprecedented situation impacts higher education institutions including teachers and students and consequently, the right to education. Education is human right - should connectivity become one as well in the 21st century?
    - Panelists: Paul Zeleza, Vice-Chancellor, United States International University-Africa, Kenya
