Enrol now for this Stellenbosch University online course
The global coronavirus pandemic has put the public communication of science in the spotlight like never before. Around the world, research organisations, NGOs and individual scientists have come to realise the importance of effective and credible engagement with a wide range of public audiences.
The popular online science communication course at Stellenbosch University is designed to help researchers and communication professionals to get to grips with the principles and practice of effective science communication. Across all modules of the 2021 edition of this course, we will reflect on the effect of the global Covid-19 pandemic, and its implications for public science engagement, with a focus on what we have learned that we can use to improve future science communication activities.
The course will be presented by Dr Marina Joubert, a pioneer of science communication practice and research in South Africa.
