Crowdworkers’ learning practices

I’ve been conducting surveys of crowdworkers’ learning practices as part of the ‘Learning in Crowdwork’ research project I am leading.

In particular, recently (in October 2017) I surveyed two groups of crowdworkers from two platforms: microworkers from CrowdFlower and online freelancers from Upwork.

As the data are being analysed, there are some interesting early findings that I’d like to share. Over the next days and weeks I’ll be publishing a series of blog posts to outline some of the most noteworthy initial results.

The questionnaire I used is based on a validated and published instrument, the Self-regulated Learning at Work Questionnaire (SRLWQ) I co-authored and now adapted for use within crowdwork settings. I’m doing some analyses to further validate the adapted version of the questionnaire hoping to publish it in due course.
