Description

We are delighted to invite you to a full LEEF training day on supporting learning through citizen science, with a focus on mobile technology and urban settings.

We are lucky to be joined by Sasha Pratt-Taweh from the Citizen Science team at the Natural History Museum, as well as Alice Sheppard from UCL ExCiteS (Extreme Citizen Science), and Maaike Milligan, a Senior Tutor at the Field Studies Council.

We would like to extend a special thanks to the City of London Open Spaces team for hosting the day at the wonderful Hampstead Heath Education Centre near Gospel Oak.

What the day will cover:

  • An introduction to citizen science for environmental learning
  • The practicalities of collecting data and making good observations while engaging diverse groups
  • Introducing the City Nature Challenge 2019 and activity ideas for running your own event
  • Learn how to use the iNaturalist app, with practical species identification on the Heath, and tips for using the app with your groups
  • Making it useful: Data analysis and dissemination
  • Tour of the Hampstead Heath education site and schools programme overview
  • Networking potluck lunch with other LEEFers and educators
  • Find out about other citizen science initiatives taking place across London

This training is appropriate for anyone working with schools, families or community groups, in formal or informal education settings.

We hope you can join us!
