General information

This course offers an introduction to citizen science: the involvement of the public in the scientific process. Members of the general public undertake various takes often in collaboration with or under the direction of professional scientists and scientific institutions. The development and application of citizen science is increasing around the world as a method to collect large amounts of data and make research relevant for the public by co-creation. Through lectures and discussion seminars, you will be presented for various projects and applications of citizen science. You will get experience with data handling in exercises and during the course there will be field work opportunities as well as workshops focussing on motivation, communication, and evaluation processes. By the end of course you will design your own project determined to answer a specific research question using citizen science.
