Module overview

Science Communication involves the dissemination of science to a lay audience. Equally as important; a good scientist is a good communicator. Science Communication is essential as an aid for governmental and industrial policy making. It is needed to counteract any misperceptions about science and is becoming an obligation for publically funded work. It is an important tool for motivating our next generation of scientists. Hence, Science Communication can boost a student’s employability for a wide range of jobs. This module provides an introduction to the methods and resources a student will need in order to play an active role in communicating science.
