The GROW Observatory

GROW is a European community of growers, scientists researchers and others passionate about the land, working to better manage soil and grow food, while contributing to scientific environmental monitoring.

Laura worked with the GROW team to design, develop and run four Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) on the topics of citizen science, food growing and environmental monitoring. During the project, she collaborated with subject matter experts (SMEs) to design and write content, write video scripts, liaise with external video and graphic content producers, populate the platform, run live courses and arrange webinars. She was also involved in post-course revision.

Across the four courses, the GROW Observatory has welcomed over 8000 learners from around the world, so far. View and sign up to the courses via FutureLearn.
