1 review

This is a free course of 1.5 hours for anyone wishing to learn about the different approaches for classifying citizen science activities. This course requires some basic knowledge and understanding of citizen science.

The course will cover:

  1. An introduction to citizen science, a definition of typologies and the challenges of classifying citizen science activities.

  2. Three of the most commonly used typologies for classifying citizen science activities: the Wiggins’ and Crowston typology, the 5C’s by Shirk et al. and Haklay’s Levels of Participation.

At the end of each section there is a short quiz or activity, and a ten question quiz at the end of the course. If you score 50% or more in the final quiz then you will earn a course completion badge and certificate.
