So what better way to communicate the value of citizen scholarship to academics than to invite you to a presentation this coming Monday, February 1st! At 12:00 pm at the Spanish Government's Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas in Madrid (Calle Albasanz 26-28, Seminar Room Juan Cabre),
I will present a lecture titled, "Global Citizen Scholars: Crowdsourcing Discovery and Manuscript Transcription Via Massive Open Online Courses." (See the announcement and PDF flyer.) I always love the opportunity to meet current and former students, so please attend the lecture if you can! I think it would be quite fun -- and powerful -- for my colleagues to see some of our students at the lecture and for them to appreciate the positive efforts we are making.
Warm regards from Madrid,
Dr. Roger L. Martinez-Davila
