“An excellent set of talks were presented by all speakers at the Second ScotDigiCH workshop on Crowdsourcing – Co-curation – Co-creation in Cultural Heritage, using a wide range of examples and analysing honestly and thoughtfully the lessons learned from their experience with crowdsourcing projects.”
The Conference was held in Glasgow (Scotland) and was attended by over seventy participants from a wide range of cultural institutions and universities at all levels, from postgraduate students to senior managers who engaged actively with the topics from the start.
Milena Dobreva (University of Malta) talked about Civic Epistemologies and about the differences between citizen science and crowdsoucing. Important issues to explore in this direction are the diffusion of innovation, the challenges in combining the roles of different stakeholders and managing users’ expectations.
Milena introduced also the Berlin Charter.
Fred Truyen (KU Leuven), who couldn’t make it to Glasgow, sent a video which was embeded into the presentation.
