The EMU Citizen Science Doctoral College – CeiED


The EMU Citizen Science Doctoral College – CeiED is a forum for discussion and training that brings together students of the Doctoral Degrees in Education, Urbanism and Museology, advisors and researchers, around joint and interdisciplinary activities of support to Thesis research works. It is a space of co-creation of scientific knowledge, based on the principles of social and cognitive justice, which may contribute directly to the development of the investigations conducted by its members and, indirectly, to the consolidation of a collaborative, inter/transdisciplinary scientific culture, attentive to the contemporary challenges of society and to the place of science in this context. Its designation – Citizen Science – reflects one of the links between the three Doctorates of CeiED: Education, Urbanism and Museology, which, with their specific goals and programs, have in common the achievement and defense of a public science that articulates research with the intervention in the social, economic, educational and cultural reality.


  1. To stimulate interdisciplinary work between the 3 Doctorates in defence of a citizen science.
  2. To consolidate interdisciplinary dialogue and the overcoming of disciplinary thought barriers.
  3. To encourage a culture of scientific debate, sharing and intellectual curiosity.
  4. To create conditions to raise the scientific quality of Thesis.
  5. To offer training means to raise the completion rate of PhDs.

Scientific curriculum management systems: ORCID and Ciência Vitae


ORCID and Ciência ID are unique, interdisciplinary and global digital identifiers that enable online curriculum management, as well as submission and sharing of scientific outputs in a digital format. Both platforms avoid misunderstandings between people with identical or similar names since each researcher is assigned an alphanumeric code. These codes are indispensable for the submission of articles to scientific journals. The platforms are linked to each other and it is possible to fill in the Ciência ID through ORCID.


  1. What is the ORCID; Its importance in the scientific field; Creation of an account
  2. What is the Ciência ID; Its importance in the scientific field; Account creation

Operationalisation of applications for projects, scholarships and other funding


The workshop aims to initiate doctoral students to empower them to use tools and information in the areas of Research and Science Management, as well as to provide motivation, knowledge and ability to identify funding opportunities in view of building a career in science.


  • To identify and interpret the different support programms according to the academic path;
  • Plan and outline applications;
  • Correctly conduct funding applications.

Quantitative data treatment – Excel basics


This workshop allows the use of computer tools in the user’s perspective, namely Microsoft Excel.

Qualitative Data Analysis: MAXQDA


This workshop aims to provide basic training in qualitative data analysis using MAXQDA. Particular emphasis will be given to content analysis as a technique capable of being articulated with computer tools to support the data analysis process. At the end of the workshop participants will be able to plan, implement and perform content analysis operations with the most common types or sources of data, including press collections, legal diplomas and interviews, to calculate frequencies and to graphically illustrate the results.


  1. Articulation of the content analysis operations with the MAXQDA software application operations
    1. Content analysis: general assumptions, organisation/stages, key terms, references;
    2. MAXQDA: characteristics and key terms.
  2. Initiating MAXQDA
    1. Interface;
    2. Windows, menus and layout.
  3. Data and coding

Interdisciplinaridade, cultura e intervenção social – um estudo de caso no museu
O Museu – Sítio de Interdisciplinaridade e Intervenção


With the aim of articulating research with intervention in social reality in a transdisciplinary way, this workshop aims to give the doctoral students the opportunity to carry out applied work in museums of their choice. The project is focused on an interdisciplinary approach around museums, which could aim to:

  • the museum as a device for social and urban integration through inclusive, democratic and participatory cultural and educational agendas.
  • the museum’s identity and urban presence, architecture, social and urbanistic role, apartenence to urban routes and urban practices of integration of the institution in social life.
  • museum as a pedagogical institution, methodologies for transmitting information practised historically and currently by the institution, techniques for attracting the public, types of public and specific apprehension techniques developed for each group of visitors.
  • The main museological cultural missions assumed by institutions in the context of contemporary urban culture and how this role revives historical (sometimes secular) agendas.
  • The workshop proposes to the participants to carry out a case study about a museum of their choice, in the disciplinary perspective that each of them chooses.
  • The main objective is to elaborate an educational and creative programme, which problematises the museum. To be implemented in the museum itself and aimed at the general public.
  • The workshop aims to encourage joint activities of the doctoral students that aim at the co-creation of scientific knowledge through practical interventions and from which not only students, but also public institutions and the general public can benefit.
  • Contents

    The steps are as follow:

    1. Each student chooses a science museum in the place where they live. In our workshop we will work on the particular history of these museums from a pedagogical, urbanistic, museological point of view, etc. Each project aims to elaborate a new educational programme for the general public which questions the role and the production of knowledge of the museum. Each student’s project is designed to be implemented in these museums and the students are responsible for dealing with the museums about the conditions of implementation of the project.
    2. The projects aims to analyse how the museum functions as an urban device and as an information transmission device and to realise a creative programme for the general public that is drawing attention to these aspects.
    3.  The last phase is the implementation of this activity in museums. We can think of formats such as: guided tours, a brochure, a performance, an art installation, etc.





    Preparation of presentations – Power Point, Prezi, videos


    What is Prezi? PowerPoint and Prezi are platforms designed to create and edit slide shows. PowerPoint is a program from Microsoft’s Office suite for Windows. Prezi is a free online service that has the function of creating non-linear presentations, adding more creativity and innovation to projects.
