The aim of this 12-hour Digitization Academy course is to empower participants with the knowledge and skills to successfully (1) identify and address the opportunities and additional complexity that public participation introduces to a digitization project at a biodiversity collection, including ethical and legal factors, (2) design a public participation in digitization project, including budgeting and risk management, (3) identify, evaluate, and use tools and online platforms in a public participation in digitization workflow, (4) identify and implement quality management strategies, (5) identify common participant motivations and strategies to recruit and engage participants in a project, including events, games, and online forums, (6) and perform evaluation of a public participation in digitization project. The course includes a conversation with representatives from some of the major online public participation platforms. The application window will open about 6 weeks before the course starts.
