Science Communication

Dr. Bradley van Paridon

Sharing Your Research with The World: From Writing to Podcasting

    Affiliation: Freelance science writer, journalist, and podcaster. Marburg, Germany

    “Have you ever thought about starting a blog or podcast to showcase your research? There is a growing public interest in research and information (but also misinformation) has never been as accessible as today, so this is the best time to get started on a science outreach project! Academic and research institutions realized this and are beginning to cherish science communication skills as advantageous capabilities of modern scientists. Science communication is therefore no longer just a minor matter and tackling if can help to facilitate one’s research career. In this workshop we will discuss the common challenges ofc ommunicating science outside of a specialty area, such as avoiding jargon or how to deal with uncertainty. We will also learn about the importance of knowing the audience and the basic elements that make a great story. These ideas and concepts will be learned through interactive group discussions, exercises and practical skills activities centered around two common communication mediums: Writing and podcasting. Emphasis will be placed on group participation and practical skills so participants can expect to walk away with the beginnings of a project and the skills to continue it after completing the workshop.”
