Open Access – Train-the-Trainer course

March 17 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Registration for this event has closed

Please note, by joining this workshop you are agreeing to follow the UKRN code of conduct.

Do you have experience with publishing open access, or responsibility for teaching or helping others with it?

The UK Reproducibility Network, in partnership with the Medical Research Council, are offering free training to researchers who are keen to train their colleagues in publishing open access.

What sort of training will you get?

This training will enable you to tailor and deliver a workshop which would teach your colleagues how and why to publish research open access as a part of their everyday workflow. You will receive training in:

  • Pedagogy skills for teaching workshops effectively
  • Planning your workshop – brainstorming ideas and deciding what to cover from our workshop template and Primers
  • Using our curated list of Open Research Resources
  • Using our UKRN Workshop Builder Tool to create your own accessible workshop website

What’s expected from you?

You don’t have to be an expert in Open Research or in delivering workshops – you just need a bit of practical experience or knowledge about publishing open access, and some enthusiasm. We’ll help you with tailoring the workshop to cover your approach, and provide training on how to deliver it.

How will the training be delivered?

The course will take place over one full day, and will be held in person at the University of Bristol, Priory Road Complex.

You will need to bring a laptop computer. If you’re travelling from outside Bristol, reasonable travel costs up to £200 can be reimbursed.
