HRA Workshop: Basics of Science Communication
When: Mon, 10.05.2021 9:00 AM until Tue, 11.05.2021 12:30 PM
Researchers play a central role in communicating science to the public, alongside professional communicators and journalists. Scientists write articles and opinion pieces for news media, give interviews, are active on social media, give presentations at public events, and much more. To successfully reach broader audiences, it is important to focus on clear and comprehensible core messages.
This introductory seminar is designed to raise awareness of the importance to communicate science. Participants learn the basic principles of science communication. They hear about the interaction of academia and the news media. Using a simple framework, participants discover the core aspects of good science communication and identify the reasons why science communication is important.
