Slides for the Crowd-sourcing, Co-creation and Co-curation in the Cultural Sector workshop by the Scottish Network on Digital Cultural Resources Evaluation
I was also invited to run a workshop on the basics of crowdsourcing in cultural heritage for a
Knowledge Exchange Event, jointly organised by the Scottish Network on Digital Cultural Resources Evaluation and the Museums Galleries Scotland Digital Transformation Network. Aimed at cultural heritage professionals, it was a hands-on exploration and exchange of different approaches to crowd-sourcing and co-creation.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to the discussion at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum!
I was invited to give a talk on ‘
‘ for the School of Advanced Study, University of London ‘Social Scholar’ seminar series in October 2015.

HILT Crowdsourcing Slides and Exercises for Monday
Session 2: links to find a project you love! For non-English language projects, try Crowdsourcing the world’s heritage.
Prompts for thinking about projects:
How clear was the purpose of the site? How well was it reflected in the ‘call to action’ and other text?
How easy was it to get started?
Were the steps to complete the task clear?
How enjoyable was the task?
Did the reward (if any) feel appropriate?
Looking at the site overall, does the project appear to be effective?
What is the input content? What is the output content?
What validation methods appear to have been used?
Who is the probable audience and what motivates them to participate?
How does the project let participants know they’re making a difference?
Does the site support communication between participants?
How was the site marketed to potential participants?
Did the site anticipate your questions about the tasks?

my experiences as a Fellow at Trinity College Dublin working on histories of World War One with the CENDARI project).
