Whether you’re hosting a scientific community, or planning, funding or evaluating one, to date there haven’t been a lot of data available to meaningful compare existing efforts. Nor were there shared language and frameworks to describe community projects. And so we conceived the CSCCE Community Profiles Project. Over the past year, we devised a detailed survey and worked with existing community managers to create our first round of 13 community profiles, each a two-page infographic that describes a community’s structure, staffing, funding, programming, and more. In this month’s newsletter:
Download and view all 13 profiles,
Find out more about how we researched and created them,
And join tomorrow’s Community Call to hear from us, as well as several community members who took part in the project.
We’ll also share news of our latest client collaboration with The Carpentries and update you on our ongoing series of virtual tools trials.
CSCCE Community Profiles
Scientific communities can come in a range of different configurations – from those hosted by professional associations to large-scale research collaborations. The CSCCE Community Profiles provide a snapshot of each community featured – highlighting key demographics, programming, funding, and what community management looks like.
This project aims to better characterize communities in science, and to support scientific community managers, their leadership, and funders by meaningfully comparing current activities taking place across the broad landscape of STEM community projects.
Join us tomorrow, Wednesday 23rd September at 6pm UTC / 2pm US EDT, when we’ll recap the CSCCE community profiles project and hear from three community managers about the profiles created for their communities.
CSCCE partners with The Carpentries on new facilitator program
We recently announced a project we’ve been working on over the summer, which involved co-authoring the first module of a new facilitators program to support emerging leaders within The Carpentries community.
Our online Tools Trials, which test different technology options for virtual events with members of the CSCCE community, take place on Thursdays at noon Eastern / 4pm UTC.
Ideation with Mural, Padlet, and Jamboard
A couple of weeks ago we compared three virtual whiteboarding tools – and summarized which to consider depending on your meeting size and goals, with bonus tips about how to use them for networking and conducting “out-in-the-open” surveys.
Last week we tested Gather, an avatar-based conferencing solution that allows attendees to explore multiple rooms in a custom venue layout – with audio fading in and out based on proximity and options to watch talks, view posters, network, and more.
