Hackathons and other participatory open science formats Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper aims to provide a structured overview of four open, participatory formats that are particularly applicable in inquiry-based teaching and learning contexts: hackathons, book sprints, barcamps, and learning circles. Using examples, mostly from the work and experience context of the Open Science Lab at TIB Hannover, we address concrete processes, working methods, possible outcomes and challenges. The compilation offers an introduction to the topic and is intended to provide tools for testing in practice.
