Learn everything you need to get your science communication career started, from how to be engaging, to project management and running social media.

Session 1: Setting the Scene.

In our first session, we will set the scene for this course. We will explore why we do science communication, and look at identifying and tailoring messages to different audiences. This session builds on what is covered in the taster session.

 

Session 2 : Videos & Visuals.

In this session, we'll explore the fundamentals of producing videos, zines and other types of visual content to tell a science story. This is a chance to get creative and produce something brand new!

Session 3 : Social Media & Raising Your Profile.

The online world is a valuable tool! We'll explore how to use social media to market your content and yourself, with input from all three trainers on how best to use social media to network and become known.

 

Session 4 : Hands on Science.

Hands on activities are an effective way to engage audiences in different contexts such as at festivals and in schools. In this session, we will explore how to create and deliver a hands-on experience for different audiences. You will also have the opportunity to develop your own ideas in this session.

Session 5 : Making Things Happen.

Whether you're producing a one-off video or organising a science festival, managing a project is just as important as creating its content. In this session we'll go over timelines, managing teams, budgets, health and safety, safeguarding and other essentials.

 

Session 6 : Case Studies & Next Steps.

In our final session, we'll explore a variety of science communication case studies based on your requests and suggestions. We will also talk about science communication jobs and other opportunities with plenty of time for questions.
