OpenUP Workshop 1 “Open and traditional peer review revisited”
In this workshop researchers working in OpenUP will present the initial results of the landscape scan of current tools and methods for peer review and the summary of the user-centered survey on open peer review. The second part of the workshop will engage the participants in a discussion on alternative review tools and their integration into the present scholarly communication system.
OpenUP Workshop 2 “Scientific knowledge dissemination and altmetrics”
The goal of the workshop is to improve the understanding of altmetrics. In the first part of the workshop, OpenUP project researchers will give an overview of current altmetrics indicators and present a taxonomy linking channels of dissemination and altmetrics indicators. Participants will be able to give feedback in a discussion that also involves methodological potentials and challenges in the area. In the second part of the workshop, we will present case studies involving innovative forms of dissemination, and discuss how open and digital science is changing research communication and engagement.

Open educational practices as drivers of educational innovation
Professor Marco Kalz, Open University of the Netherlands, Netherlands

While open educational practices have often been connected to the use of OER or the openness of the educational design recent developments around the open sharing of data and cross-institutional educational interventions support a new perspective on the concept of open educational practices. Based on the urgent need for more systematic research about educational interventions the recent combination of Massive Open Online Courses and Learning Analytics allows the establishment of a cross-institutional educational lab infrastructure in which interventions are tested across several contexts. Such an approach can lead at the same time to more evidence-driven educational interventions for online-learning.
