Title: Science communication as a field of research and practice
Date and time: 24 April, 12-14h
Location: Van der Sterr, 3022
Science communication is the public communication of science-related topics to non-experts. It includes science exhibitions, journalism, policy or media production. Science communication also includes communication between scientists, for example scientific journals, as wells as between scientists and non-scientists. In this talk, Dr Marina Joubert will introduce you to the science communication research programme at Stellenbosch University, with a focus on how they bridge research and practice. Her talk will include practical advice and future opportunities for academics interested in public science engagement.
