Methods Workshop on 'Citizen Science' by Peter Lugtig

Bottom-up Initiatives for Societal Change organises the first

to

On Tuesday 13 Februari (15:00-17:30), Peter Lugtig gives a methods workshop on the use of citizen science as a method for researching bottom-up initiatives. This will be the first workshop of our newly launched Methods Workshop Series as the platform Bottom-up Initiatives for Societal Change.

As announced earlier, one of the new initiatives of the platform Bottom-up Initiatives for Societal Change is a series of workshops on methods. Phenomena such as citizen initiatives and social entrepreneurship can be challenging to study empirically; at the same time, researchers from different disciplines use a wide range of empirical methods to study them. With this series of workshops, we hope to contribute to the dissemination of expertise across disciplines, while also collectively exploring new methods and opportunities for studying bottom-up initiatives.

In this first instalment, Peter Lugtig of the Department of Methods and Statistics at the Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences will discuss citizen science as an empirical method for studying social phenomena. In the first part of the workshop, Peter will give a general introduction to citizen science, discussing the general idea, advantages and disadvantages, and examples. In the second half of the workshop, we will collectively discuss and explore opportunities for applying such methods to phenomena in the field of bottom-up initiatives. Participants are encouraged to bring in their own research questions and challenges.


Date and time: Tuesday 13 Februari, 15:00-17:30.
