Citizen science is a way to increase student engagement, highlight the applied relevance of course activities, introduce students to the principles of research, provide access to data sets, and provide pathways for inclusion of science in students’ lives outside of courses. This special collection explores the ways both online and field-based citizen science can be integrated in higher education as a tool for teaching and learning, professional development, and community building.
