T12 - Reproducibility for everyone: a train-the-trainer course for teaching reproducibility tools and methods

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

FSCI courses are now closed. Course attendees must go to the course OSF page do see course materials and Zoom links.


An ecosystem of tools and methods for improving the rigor and reproducibility of research is thriving. Information professionals at research institutions must stay informed about what tools are available and how they compare. Ideally, they can also onboard researchers to kickstart their adoption. However, developing quality curriculum to train researchers on new tools requires expertise in the tool itself, which leaves many researchers without training on tools that may benefit their research.

This course will train participants to run hands-on, quality modules designed to onboard researchers to four free, open source tools. Participants will experience the module, practice the exercises, and explore the training material needed to run the module themselves. An instructor guide that includes the module outline, objectives, description, frequently-asked-questions, pre- and post- participant surveys, target audience, and instructions for running a successful module is included for each tool taught.

This course will train participants to run modules on unique aspects of reproducibility for researchers:
  • Data management
  • Electronic lab notebooks
  • Organizing and sharing protocols
  • Reagent sharing
  • Bioinformatics tools
  • Data and code sharing
  • Data visualization and analysis
  • Designing figures with images
Many FSCI participants already run short-duration training events at their institution. This course is ideal for those FSCI participants who wish to improve the quality and variety of the training they already offer to researchers. Participants who do not currently run short-duration training events at their institutions would benefit from the course by learning an accessible and efficient way of getting started with these modules.

For participants of last year’s version of this course, “Open source tools for everyone: a train-the-trainer course for teaching 4 open research tools”, these modules are new but designed to be interoperable with the modules taught at FSCI 2020.

Note: there are no repeat session for this class.
