Planning science communication – the workshop

Jesse Shore asks who runs science communication skills workshops across Australia.

Econnect does, and has been for 18 years!

Econnect has run hundreds of workshops on media, presentation and communication skills for scientists.

Now we are offering a NEW workshop, Planning Science Communication.

Good research deserves a good communication plan, and good communication takes careful planning.

This practical and lively one-day workshop will take participants through a seven-step process of planning a communication campaign.

What do you want to say about the research and why do you want to say it? What is the best method of providing information to the audiences you want to reach?

The first workshops will be in Sydney on Monday January 31, Perth on Thursday February 3 and Adelaide on Thursday February 10 (other cities will follow).

Designed for science communicators (and scientists!), the workshop program includes case studies, discussion, presentations and planning exercises. By the end of the day, each participant will have an outline communication plan for their project.

“Very practical & useful – we’ll be able to use the material presented in our everyday project work. Very engaging and good level of active participation.” Kelly Bryant, Qld Dept of Environment and Resources Management

Cost per participant is $680+GST (total $748)
