Schedule & guests
Hey, I'm Billy.
I was the lead organizer of the initial course sprint/hackathon that built this course, and I'm your guide. Welcome.
I work at Creative Commons (CC), primarily on education and community-related projects. I interned with CC from last October to April, and spent most of that time teaching myself about Open Science. After a while I became intrigued by the topic, and thought it would be cool to share what I've figured out with others, and maybe bring in the expertise of some cool Open Science people, too.
Before CC, I wasn't a scientist. I wouldn't even necessarily call myself a teacher, but I did get my instructional design chops at the DCDC. My role in this course is that of a peer, just like you. I've invited guests from various parts of Open Science to come share a little about themselves in some synchronous class sessions, and will be hosting them on brief panel talks centered around each module. Some of the best ideas come from simple, spontaneous discussions, and this will be a chance for some of that magic to happen for newcomers to Open Science. I'm kind of excited to be a part of it :)
Michelle is an Associate Professor of writing studies at Auburn University. She was one of the remote participants that helped craft this course during the sprint, and will be helping things run smoothly behind the scenes during this run-through of the course. Her research interests include science communication, digital writing, and writing program administration. She independently volunteered to help out with this facilitated run-through, and we're glad to have her!
