The OxCrowd Network brings together academics and students to share and discuss insights on methodological and theoretical challenges related to understanding contemporary crowdbased phenomena facilitated by digital technologies and platforms.

From Citizen Science to Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and crowdsourced cultural heritage collections, crowdbased phenomena facilitated by the Internet are of increasing scientific interest across academic disciplines, and are gradually becoming part of everyday life. OxCrowd arranges 2-4 events a term, ranging from seminars with invited speakers to round table discussions of work-in-progress.

OxCrowd is for anyone with interest in crowdbased knowledge and learning, including practitioners. It creates a shared space for researchers and students across sociology, education, physics, information engineering, digital humanities, medicine and beyond.

The OxCrowd network aims to:

  • Foster interdisciplinary research and collaboration.
  • Showcase and discuss empirical research focusing on issues related to crowdbased knowledge and learning.
  • Contribute to debates on how to combine qualitative methods and data science approaches.
