Communicating Science Responsibly


Location: Geddes Hall 400


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.

Communicating Science Responsibly prepares STEM graduate students to better navigate their public engagement by tackling this terrain through a case study that explores ethical issues surrounding Science Communication.

This workshop, offered as a module on Scientific Integrity to students in GLOBES, an interdisciplinary graduate training program in environment and society, is OPEN TO ANYONE.
