Citizen Science at The Open University

Citizen science is a growing trend in involving the public in different types of collaboration with scientists. In The Open University we are interested in how citizen scientists learn about science when engaged in inquiry activities, and the growth of such learning opportunities. We have developed a number of research projects and software around citizen science (iSpot, citizen inquiry, nQuire, nQuire-it, Sense-it, building sustainable policing-practitioner communities online).
