November’s #HeritageChat explored how the growth of citizen heritage science projects can be improved. In particular, discussions focused on what types of citizen science projects are particularly effective in engaging people with heritage and provided an opportunity for people and organisations who have experience in organising such projects, to provide tips to others looking to do so. Advice was offered on determining audiences, the best methods of collecting data and the pitfalls to look out for. Existing guidance on running a citizen science project was also shared. You can read a full summary of the discussions here.
Our next #HeritageChat will take place on 19 December (13:00-14:00). Please contact us if you would like to lead this session or have an idea for a particular topic that you would like to see explored. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
