Courses

Open Science: An Introduction (CC BY)

This course is meant to share information about what it means for science to be open with young scientists (of all ages), and hopefully inspire them to champion things that are more open. A number of communities are networked within Open Science, and we’ve designed this course as a high-level introduction to topics and groups that are chipping away at closed systems in science.

Data

Edinburgh DataShort: College of Science & Engineering (Various CC licences)

A digital repository of research data produced at the University of Edinburgh by the College of Science and Engineering.

Textbooks

ABE Fundamental Level Science Modules This is a Canadian created resource(CC BY)

A collection of 5 modules designed for Adult Basic Education (ABE) fundamental level science. The five modules cover astronomy, ecology, biology, physics, and water. While they contain specific content, each book emphasizes a particular type of scientific thinking. The books are designed to be consumable student workbooks.

This is a Canadian created resourceThe Mission, the Message, and the Medium: Science and Risk Communication in a Complex World (CC BY-ND)

From the University of British Columbia, this textbook covers many of the principles of science communication, as well as the theory and practice of risk communication, specifically. The content is divided into three main sections: 1) the ‘mission’ (why you are communicating), 2) the ‘message’ (what you are communicating), and 3) the ‘medium’ (how you are communicating).

Tools
