As part of our theory of change strategy, the Center for Open Science (COS) offers researchers tools and services to make research better, more efficient, and more reproducible. It is important to create engagement with research communities as researchers are more likely to adopt reproducible practices when they are backed by community leadership and support. Groups, institutions, and funders partner with COS to provide their researchers with open infrastructure, methods, and training.
The STEM Education Hub is a place for educators, researchers, librarians, policymakers, and anyone in need of educational resources in STEM to learn, discover, share, and engage. Community building for the hub is supported through the following initiatives.
By advancing these initiatives and the organization of resources through the OSKB, the STEM Education Hub supports grassroots efforts to change the research culture in education research toward greater openness, rigor, and reproducibility.
"The STEM Education Hub connects researchers with resources to engage with open science practices for the first time," said Marcy Reedy, COS Community Manager. "We help build communities through unconferences—where the participants set the agenda—and through knowledge sharing in the Open Scholarship Knowledge Base."
