Detailed Description

Science communication: Connecting people and creating events is a short online course created to offer professional development for people new to science communication who want to develop their skills and knowledge in science communication practice. This course is run entirely online and is designed to be accessible to participants from around the world. The course will run from 15th January 2018 until 25th March 2018 (includes two private study weeks).

The course draws on the expertise of the team that delivers UWE's popular and practical Science Communication postgraduate programmes.  Each weekly ‘unit’ will have opportunities for independent and directed learning, including online lectures, group activities and self-assessment opportunities.

Topics covered include: The historical and social contexts of science communication, understanding audiences, project planning, project management, designing face-to-face activities, facilitation skills, presentation skills, working with the media and evaluation.

Requirements: The course is aimed at people new to science communication as well as those with some experience. The course will be run in English, so participants will need to be comfortable reading, listening and writing in English.
