‘Open Research in practice’ online module has launched

A new online module on Open Research is now available on SurreyLearn.

Created by the Library and Learning Support and endorsed by the University’s Open Research Working Group (ORWG), the module covers several areas of Open Research that apply to different disciplines. From open publications, theses and research data to transparent practices throughout the research process, and from advice for more discoverable research to introducing open education, the module highlights what the University and funders expect you to do and helps you engage with further open practices relevant to your own field.

The module works alongside an action list and a short assignment to help you decide your next steps in Open Research. On completion you will earn the Open Research badge:  a  verifiable, portable and shareable digital micro-credential with embedded information about the training. You can add the badge to your CV, website, and social media (e.g., LinkedIn).

Whether you are new to Open Research or already engage with open practices, the module encourages you to turn knowledge to practice and to share your own knowledge and experience with the researcher community.
