Volunteer engagement, management and care
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.
