Training and Re-training in Open and Reproducible Research

Abstract The shelf-life of skills is getting shorter in a rapidly changing, more interdisciplinary world. Interdisciplinarity is at the core of the need for continued professional development. Advances in data sciences, mathematics, chemistry, physics, and elsewhere constantly reshape the possibilities of life science research. Within the life sciences, evidence demonstrates that researchers and educators must be better supported and equipped to recognize and traverse skills gaps. The report STEM Careers and the Changing Skill Requirements of Work (Deming & Kadeem, 2019) concluded that when it comes to a shortage of skilled STEM workforce, “it is the new STEM skills that are scarce, not the workers themselves.” While millions are spent on bootcamps and workshops to bolster skills, much of this may not have sustainable impact (Feldon, 2017).
This talk will introduce approaches taken by the CyVerse project (NSF-funded life science cyberinfrastructure) to teaching its Foundational Open Science Skills (FOSS) course to train and retrain researchers in open science and reproducibility practices (https://cyverse.org/foss). We will also introduce a new framework – “The Bicycle Principles” – for making short-format training more effective and inclusive across the career span (https://www.bikeprinciples.org/).


Rigor and Reproducibility Seminar Series - UF Interdisciplinary T32 in Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration

This seminar series is jointly hosted by the UF Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration Program and the UF Health Science Center Libraries. Talks focus on rigor and reproducibility topics for the pre-doctoral training program.

This program and seminar series is funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) through T32 NS082128, awarded to PIs Dawn Bowers (College of PHHP) and David E. Vaillancourt (College of HHP).

The seminar will be recorded, with the recording distributed to registered attendees after the event.
