Dear all,

What does implementing the FAIR data principles in universities mean in reality? How can it be rolled out on the ground among researchers and students? What are the expectations of doing this in a diverse multi-disciplinary environment? 

To start to solve these challenges, we are holding a Book Sprint in June to develop a handbook for practical implementation of FAIR in curricula and need your help as experts. 

Calling for your expertise!

Are you an expert in the FAIR data principles and teach what they mean in practice to students and researchers? Are you developing curricula or do you link FAIR to generic or discipline-specific aspects of data science and RDM? Have you created exercises, lessons or other teaching materials addressing aspects of FAIR as Open Educational Resources? Are you familiar with course creation and amendment processes? Then we need you! This is an exciting opportunity, and we need your help to make this a reality – join our interactive sessions and together we can make this happen!

How to Apply

To register your interest in being an author during the Sprint please fill in this form: https://tinyurl.com/f2z9y7yy 

Deadline: 3 May 2021

Applicants will be notified by Friday, 14 May 2021, of the outcome of their application. The organisers will review applications based on motivation and expertise, as well as bringing together people from diverse backgrounds and geographical locations.

Background

One of the aims of the FAIRsFAIR project (https://fairsfair.eu) is to foster and support the integration of FAIR content into the curricula of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). Based on a landscape analysis and a job market analysis, FAIRsFAIR has developed a FAIR Competence Framework for Higher Education (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.4562088). 

Making it Practical – What is Involved?

To translate the framework into material that supports HEIs in implementing it, the project will produce an Adoption Handbook for Universities – containing model courses, units and curricula as well as supporting materials. We believe that the Handbook will benefit from as wide and diverse input as possible and would therefore like to invite the community to participate in this process.

The Sprints will involve: examining and reviewing the materials which are available to date and working together to develop model curricula, courses and learning units for different levels (Bachelor, Master, Doctoral) and from different perspectives (e.g. disciplinary, discipline-agnostic). 

What you can expect in return: This will be a virtual endeavor. If you are able to provide your time, your name will feature prominently as co-author and, given this is one of the first of its kind, authors will be credited with having made a significant contribution to implementing FAIR!

The handbook will be made openly available and published under an open license. 

Dates

The series of events will include a kick-off meeting, four sprint sessions and a wrap-up. Sprinters don’t have to attend all sessions, but should at least participate in the kick-off event, one sprint session and the wrap-up meeting. 

1 June 2021, 10:00-13:00 CEST (Kick-off)   

2 June 2021, 14:00-17:00 CEST (Sprint session)

4 June 2021, 10:00-13:00 CEST (Sprint session)

8 June 2021, 10:00-13:00 CEST (Sprint session) 

9 June 2021, 14:00-17:00 CEST (Sprint session) 

10 June 2021, 10:00-13:00 CEST (Wrap-up)

Please mark these dates in your calendar and apply here: https://tinyurl.com/f2z9y7yy by 3 May 2021 if you’re interested to join up for this endeavour!
