Tune in to OA Week “Equity in Open Knowledge” Highlight–Open Data Activism in Search of Algorithmic Transparency

DSpace news - ოთხ, 09/10/2019 - 19:39

From Verletta Kern, Digital Scholarship Librarian, University of Washington Libraries

Take a break during Open Access Week and join the ACRL Open Research and Digital Collections Discussion Groups on Tuesday, October 22nd from 11:00am-12:00pm Central for “Open Data Activism in Search of Algorithmic Transparency: Algorithmic Awareness in Practice”.  Tying in with this year’s OA Week theme of “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge,” this online learning opportunity will begin with an introduction to algorithms, touching on definitions, implications, and the link to digital transparency initiatives followed by a chance for a simple, hands-on experience with pseudocode (no previous coding knowledge required).   Presenters Jason Clark and Julian Kaptanian (Montana State University Libraries)  will facilitate a discussion on programmer bias, the complexity behind algorithmic decisions, and integrating the concept of algorithmic awareness into teaching and advocacy.

This learning opportunity has grown in part out of the robust research conducted by Clark and Kaptanian as a part of an IMLS grant and the positive reception of a previous collaboration between the ACRL Open Research and Digital Collections Discussion Groups, presented earlier in 2019. Recording available here. We hope to continue the learning here in this hands-on webinar that integrates algorithmic awareness into teaching and advocacy. 

Please register in advance for this event. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. A recording will be available after the event for those who register. We hope you will join us for this Open Access Week event!
