Science communication and its role in society – pilot course for doctoral students

A scientist presenting his results.

Science communication skills – are they really something you need to train as a doctoral student? Yes. And why not now?

There has been much talk of “getting research out there” lately, and for good reason. But we all know that conveying a message to others is easier said than done.

Doctoral students in all disciplines at Lund University, take the opportunity to reflect upon science role in society and improve your ways of communicating research. This five-day course consists of lectures, discussions in groups and interactive exercises where you work on different modes of communication.

This course has been held at the Faculty of Science for several years, content and structure are however relevant to all research disciplines, hence this pilot to open up for more and other doctoral students. The pilot course is free of charge for both individuals and departments.

When? 23/11, 24/11, 1/12, 2/12, 6/12.
Time: 9-15 o’clock, one day (likely 24/11) a bit longer. You need to be able to participate all dates.

Where? Online and on campus, more details to come.
