Center for Open Science Workshop

Recently UC Libraries and the Graduate School hosted the Center for Open Science for two workshops on research reproducibility.  The Center for Open Science, a non-for-profit based in Charlotteville, Va.  promotes openess, integrity and transparency in research.  Ian Sullivan of the COS facilitied the workshop and worked with researchers to address several types of repoducibility issues in research- Computational, Methodological and Results replicability.

Computational reproducibility means that given the data and code/analysis methods used, someone else could reproduce the graphs and calculations in your paper or report.  Methodological reproducibility means that someone else could follow your protocols and rerun the experperiment or research again and get the same results as you did.  And results replicability means that with new data and using your methods and analysis, someone else can come to the same conclusion as you did.

Games at the Clermont College Library

Free time between classes? Need to relax for a bit? Stop by the Clermont College Library.

We’ve set up a game table, where you can play Jenga, Battleship, or Connect Four.

Playing games helps decrease stress and can improve critical thinking. Spending time having fun may be the boost needed to get back to that research paper or clear your mind to study for a test.

As the semester winds down, take a half-an-hour and enjoy some healthy competition.
