Impact-oriented Planning of Citizen Science Projects

How do I achieve impact with my Citizen Science project? In this course, impact-oriented planning steps are demonstrated using examples of Citizen Science projects. The participants transfer the input step-by-step to their own projects. This provides participants with a logical project model, allowing them to plan, implement, and evaluate their projects effectively.

Learning objectives  Participants
  • recognise the benefits of a logic model for project planning and implementation and are motivated to use it
  • can structure their project objectives and goals according to the levels of a logic model
  • understand the importance of precise target group differentiation and can implement it
  • can plausibly derive cause-effect relationships per target group and translate them into their logic model
  • can determine effective project activities based on their reflections on the cause-effect relationships
