Open Office Hours

The purpose of the Open Office Hour is to provide an accessible online version of the traditional university office hour, in which our research partners hold a brief informal discussion on a topic within their expertise and take questions regarding that topic.

Our Open Office Hours are hosted online using Zoom, and are free for anyone to attend. Wherever possible, we will record videos and make them available following the meeting. You can find materials for past Office Hours here, or on the Open Science Framework: https://osf.io/cqa2e/

How to access:  Although we wish to keep Open Office Hours as open as possible, it has become clear that we must also implement additional security measures to protect our events and those who choose to participate in them. Going forward, we will ask that participants enter a password in order to join an Open Office Hour. We will send those passwords and Zoom meeting links to you by email.

If you would like to be included on our Open Office Hour mailing list, please sign up here: Open Office Hours Sign-Up Form

If you have any ideas or requests for future Open Office Hours, you can let us know via our Suggestion Box or by emailing us at info @ wordsintheworld.ca.
