Designing online citizen science investigations using nQuire, 6 March, Milton Keynes
24 February 2020
Public Engagement - training
Are you interested in how technology can support citizen science, crowdsourcing, or public engagement?
Would you like to set up and manage your own citizen science investigation online, i.e., set up your own research question, gather, analyse and share data?
Join this free, interactive workshop on the 6th March at the Open University UK and get support to author and run your own citizen science investigation (in any area, field, or discipline) using the nQuire platform (nquire.org.uk).
nQuire is a platform developed by the Open University in partnership with the BBC. It has been designed to support the process of setting up, managing, and implementing citizen science projects from start to the end (see nquire.org.uk).
By the end of this workshop, you will:
(a) learn what nQuire is about,
(b) learn how to author nQuire investigations,
(c) set up and pilot one investigation you are interested in,
(d) get feedback and support from the nQuire team,
(e) find out about projects pursued by other attendees
Reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.
Complimentary lunch and coffee provided.
The workshop will take place Fri, 6 March 2020, 09:30am – 2:30pm at Jennie Lee Building, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA.
