Open Syllabus: UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science


This course uses the UNESCO Recommendations on Open Science to teach principles of open science and develop communities of open science practice. We designed this course to help early career researchers develop an understanding of the principles of open science and the ability to recognize those principles in their own work contexts. The intended audience of early-career researchers  includes, but is not limited to,  upper-division undergraduates in the sciences, including the social sciences, through post-doctoral scholars and tenure-track faculty. Senior scholars may also benefit from the course for professional development, community building, and an entry point for implementing UNESCO’s recommendations in their work. The course design centers open pedagogy practices and is suitable for online and in-person formats.

Self-check and discussion questions are available
in a standard template compatible with many learning management systems.


This syllabus and accompanying course materials were developed as part of the Open Education for a Better World program (OE4BW) with the mentorship of Geoff Cain and Tel Amiel.
