Hi Kshitiz

I ran an afternoon session with some postgraduate students introducing open
science and giving some examples of great open science projects, then we
ran a discussion exercise in groups to explore how open science might help
them overcome some of their frustrations with research and better meet
their goal, as well as their personal reservations about doing things more
openly. I blogged about it and provided a link to slides [1]

You could of course modify the examples to suit the audience!

+1 for Raniere's suggestion of a hands on element as well though :)
