Some Thoughts on the Open Scholarship in Education (OSE) Working Meeting



With my colleague Cynthia D’Angelo, I presented a webinar on analyzing educational data from an open science perspective through the Center for Open Science. The organization (unsurprisngly!) advocates for openness in research; they created and maintain the fairly widely-used (across research fields) Open Science Framework platform for sharing.

The Center for Open Science invited people from across educational research to join a working meeting this week on open science in educational science—wait, scratch that, in educational scholarship! I say that in that way because the names used really matter; not everyone (in act, perhaps a minority) of researchers in education identify as scientists; more, I believe, would identify as educational researchers—or something else, like teacher educators). I was happy to join; Charlottesville seemed fun to visit and the topic was right up my alley. I thought I could bring a teacher education (and a bit of an educational data science) perspective to the meeting, too.

We’re wrapping up now - I’m near the back typing away - but I thought to try to sum up a few take-aways now. First, I’ll share the agenda here. Some additional materials are here/

Some Reflections

I’ll start with these reflections … but possibly follow up on these in a later post or posts!
