Order of business: Participants are welcome to arrive at 09:30 for morning tea (provided by QNC). Please register to assist us with numbers for catering. At 10:00am the talks will commence – each of 3 speakers will speak for 10-15 minutes and there will be time for questions. Following the last speaker, participants in groups will head outside to practise taking and uploading observations using the iNaturalist app. Assistance will be available from the speakers. 

We will then return inside where we will use the iNaturalist website to view participants’ observations and discuss how to use the website facilities to extract data.

Details: This free workshop is suitable for people with no knowledge or experience of iNaturalist, however it is also suitable for those who have had experience of the program but feel they are not getting the most out of it. Staff and students of St Peter’s College have been invited to attend this workshop. Before attending, it is requested that everyone should already have the iNaturalist app loaded on their device and their profile prepared (your username and what you want people to know about you, if anything, and your copyright settings).

Goals of the workshop: To provide an understanding of what makes an observation worthy of uploading to the program, including photography standards To provide an introduction to projects, the different types of projects, their utility and in particular, projects created as a record of QNC excursions To provide attendees with a background knowledge of how to assist the scientific and social purposes of iNaturalist To facilitate attendees becoming more confident in exploring the massive iNaturalist database to find what is interesting and helpful to them as individuals and to science more broadly Useful Resource: A Guide to iNaturalist
