Citizen Science Short Course, July 15 - August 5, Wednesdays 12-2 MDT

You are invited to participate in a short course on Citizen Science that will be facilitated by NCAR Early Career Faculty Innovator, Monica Barra, and her graduate student, Teresa Norman. Citizen Science is a concept and research methodology that seeks to question and expand the purview of scientific authority beyond the realm of scientific laboratories and experts. This short course will introduce the history, theoretical concepts, and different applications of Citizen Science, as well as the possibilities and limitations of Citizen Science research. The short course will be held on Wednesdays from 12-2pm MDT, beginning July 15th for four sessions:

  • July 15
  • July 22
  • July 29
  • Aug 5


Each week, invited scholars and practitioners will discuss these concepts and each session will be supported by short readings.

Sessions are free and open to the public. Please share with your colleagues as well as faculty, students, practitioners, etc. Please RSVP for the Zoom link to the sessions and access to shared readings. For more information, visit the course website.
