This is a free course that benefits from access to the lessons learned from COMPASS, a citizen science project funded by the Spanish Government and aimed to evaluate the usability of a mobile health (mHealth) intervention in a primary school setting. No prior knowledge in science reporting is needed for this course.
By the end of this course, the learner will be able to:
- Recognize the key stages of a citizen science project and the required adaptation to the particular circumstances of a primary or secondary school
- Understand and learn how to build community before planning a citizen science project
- Plan the systematic procedure of data collection and the process of analysis and interpretation of information gathered in the classroom context
- Highlight the evaluation of citizen science projects, once finished, as a tool to improve the processes and outcomes.
