Professional Development Event - "Communicating Science Responsibly"
Scientific researchers are now called upon to engage more fully with diverse publics and policy-makers. Public engagement, however, comes with its own challenges. As scientists and engineers leave their labs and enter the public sphere, they need to consider how to make responsible use of communication techniques by coupling skill in communicating effectively with deeper reflection on communicating ethically. STEM graduate students prepare to better navigate their public engagement by tackling this terrain through a case study that explores ethical issues surrounding Science Communication.
