Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The notion of Open Science is enjoying great popularity at the moment, some even go so far to call it "the better science". The European Union has recently adopted the term Open Science in its research framework programme, however negotiations about benefits and challenges of Open Science take place in many different arenas. In general, Open Science demands the highest possible transparency, accountability, and shareability in knowledge production, as well as the participation of all relevant stakeholders in the scientific process.In this seminar we will be looking at the diversity of Open Knowledge cultures in science and humanities.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Grading scheme:
The grading of the course is based on the separate assessment of different tasks on a scale of 1-5.
Active contribution and involvement in discussion: 30 %
Homework / assignments: 30 %
Presentation / Blogging: 30 %
Formal criteria (delivery on time, citation, layout,...): 10 %
To successfully complete the course, a weighted average of at least 4,5 is required. Failure to meet the attendance regulations, to deliver course assignments on time or to adhere to standards of academic work may result in a deduction of points.
Important Grading Information:
If not explicitly noted otherwise, all requirements mentioned in the grading scheme and the attendance regulations must be met. If a required task is not fulfilled, e.g. a required assignment is not handed in or if the student does not meet the attendance requirements, this will be considered as a discontinuation of the course. In that case, the course will be graded as 'fail' (5), unless there is a major and unpredictable reason for not being able to fulfill the task on the student's side (e.g. a longer illness). In such a case, the student may be de-registered from the course without grading. It is the student’s responsibility to communicate this in a timely manner, and to provide relevant evidence to their claims if necessary. Whether this exception applies is decided by the vice-director of studies responsible for the master programme.
If any requirement of the course has been fulfilled by fraudulent means, be it for example by cheating at an exam, plagiarizing parts of a written assignment or by faking signatures on an attendance sheet, the student's participation in the course will be discontinued, the entire course will be graded as 'not assessed' and will be entered into the electronic exam record as 'fraudulently obtained'. Self-plagiarism, particularly re-using own work handed in for other courses, will be treated likewise.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Discussing ideal and actual realms of Open Science practices we will approach aspects such as Open Access, Open Research Data, Open Education, Open Evaluation, Citizen Science and Open Innovation from several perspectives, drawing on literature from stakeholders such as science, policy, science administration, technology, NGOs and Open Science activists. The objective is to understand Open Science situated within the movement of Open Cultures, therefore investigating its promising roles as change maker both in traditional academic settings and in society at large. The focus will be particularly on exchanges and translations of practices of science in society and respective epistemic politics.
Besides, the seminar aims at introducing Open Science as a set of practices to students to let them explore options for their own studies and theses.
