3rd Cultural Diversity, Migration, and Education Conference

August 25 – 27, 2021

***We’re going virtual!***

Pre-conference Workshop (morning of August 25th, 2021)


Open Science – A working path to shared principles and behaviours

Open Science can be defined as a set of principles and behaviours that promote transparent, credible, reproducible, and accessible science (Syed, 2019). Yet there is a lack of consensus, and even ambiguity, regarding the many practices that fall under the umbrella of Open Science. The aim of this workshop is twofold: First, to uncover the multifaceted meaning of Open Science; second, to provide a practical, step-by-step guide for pre-registering quantitative and qualitative research. The workshop will furthermore discuss the unique challenges that scholars working on topics of diversity, migration, and education may face when promoting Open Science in their own research.

This workshop is for everyone interested in critically examining and improving their own research practices. Early career researchers are particularly welcomed to join the workshop.

Sauro Civitillo completed his PhD in the research team Diversity in Education and Development, at the University of Potsdam. Currently, he is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Migration and Integration research group (Institute of Psychology) at the University of Duisburg-Essen, where he is also part of the Open Science task force. His research interests include teacher cultural diversity beliefs, teacher-based ethnic/racial discrimination, culturally responsive teaching, and initial teaching preparation. https://www.uni-due.de/biwi/interkulturelle_psychologie/index
