Citizen Science: Gearing Up for Discovery 20-21

The HSHSL proposes a course to build skills in people to become effective citizen scientists. A team at the HS/HSL is developing an online course, breaking down citizen science and research methods into understandable components. Citizen Science is being explored through the lens of public health, environmental health, and personal health. The course will be asynchronous and self-paced, with approximately 30-40 hours of content. It will be offered free of charge. The online course will be comprised of approximately five classes, each containing distinct topical units. Classes will be mounted on the edX platform and use a variety of instructional methodologies such as short lectures, animation, interviews, and slides. There will be additional resources, assignments, and evaluation tools developed.
