The 2014 DML Conference, “Connecting Practices,” will be held March 6-8, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts. To attend, register at http://bit.ly/dml2014reg.
“Connecting the silos of citizen science as a field is a very exciting thing to explore,” says Darlene Cavalier, founder of SciStarter.
Just how that can be done will be the topic of discussion when she speaks at the Digital Media and Learning Conference on the “Connecting the silos of citizen science” panel, taking place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. March 8.
Her panel will explore a unique MOOC created collaboratively by five citizen science communities seeking to connect their practices and make open research more accessible to newcomers. Cavalier was interviewed because her work embodies the conference theme and her panel provides a strong example of the kind of projects and programs you’ll be introduced to at the conference.
The conference is supported by the MacArthur Foundation and organized by the Digital Media and Learning Research Hub, located at the University of California’s systemwide Humanities Research Institute at UC Irvine.
