Presentation at the Computers and Learning Research Group (CALRG) Conference for my PhD project: How the results of the “Inquiring Rock Hunters” project will inform the design of the new project?
My prezi presentation for the paper “A design-based study of Citizen Inquiry for geology“
Abstract: Citizen Inquiry forms a new method of informal science learning and aims to enable the engagement of citizens in online scientific investigations. Citizen Inquiry combines aspects from Citizen Science and Inquiry-based learning and is implemented through a community of practice where people having a shared interest interact and exchange knowledge and methods supported and guided by online systems and tools within a web-based inquiry environment. To explore the potential of Citizen Inquiry, a series of design-based studies will be developed to help in understanding and improving the engagement of citizens in online scientific investigation. “Inquiring Rock Hunters” is the first design-study of Citizen Inquiry, applied to Geology, and it explores the experience of participants with inquiries, other participants and tools.
This year’s Computers and Learning Research Group (CALRG) Conference celebrate the Regius Professorship in Open Education bestowed to the Open University thanks to my supervison Professor Eileen Scanlon.
My presentation took place on 11th of June with other presentations related to the Future of Open Education.
