This free course is aimed at anyone who will spend time interacting with citizen scientists. This course will introduce you to a variety of means to promote effective communication between everyone involved in the project, to community building, and to a deeper understanding of the citizen scientist's perspective and their needs. 

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • understand some concerns and barriers citizen scientists may face when they sign up to a project, and ways you may be able to overcome them; 
  • plan how to enable communications and discussions to take place in citizen science;
  • analyse your own citizen science project to choose the best platform for learning, feedback and community building.
