Open data, open research discussion at ICTD 2012

The Global Impact Study held a session during ICTD 2012 in Atlanta to discuss open data and open research. After providing an overview of the Global Impact Study, survey instruments, and open research and open data, we divided the participants into three groups (the public/users, researchers, and sponsors/funders) to hear perspectives from different types of stakeholders. Each group discussed five questions regarding open data and open research. Even though it is challenging to talk about the multitude of issues surrounding open data in a short session, we received a considerable amount of relevant and useful feedback. Varying audiences, such as the public, researchers, and sponsors/funders, all have different considerations, priorities, and ideals of an open data approach. There are many factors, from a variety of viewpoints, that go into an open research approach and opening up data to the public.

Survey data analysis and integration begins with two workshops

April 18-21, 2011 was very busy and productive for us here at the Global Impact Study. We held two workshops - one on survey data analysis and one on our project-wide data integration plan. During the survey data analysis workshop, we reviewed initial user survey data to identify three high-level reports that we will produce this spring: a user profile report, a report on services offered at public access ICT venues and how people are using them, and a report on perceived impacts of using public access ICT.
