Transcript

  • 1. Virtual Citizen Science
    • Citizen science projects involve the public with scientists in collaborative research
      • Generates scientifically-valued outcomes
      • Depends on participation for scale or scope
    • Diverse characteristics
      • Participants, scientific research goals, task structure, organizational setting, IT use
    • We developed a conceptual framework to guide research & cyberinfrastructure development
  • 2.  
  • 3. Issues for Refinement
    • Structure
      • Small groups, communities or networks of practice, crowdsourcing?
      • Communities vs organizations
    • Context
      • Place-based vs entirely virtual; translation of collocated practices to online versions
    • Experience
      • More than motivation, effects on outcomes
