Inquiring Rock Hunters poster paper in Open Learning and Teaching in Educational Communities, Springer, available here.

Abstract: The Inquiring Rock Hunters project is an example of Citizen Inquiry. Adult citizens designed and ran their own investigations in geology, through the online platform called nQuire, while collaborating with scientists. Analysis of the investigations shows patterns of collaboration and mentoring between novice, intermediate and expert geologists, however further work is needed to create a self-sustaining community of inquiry.
