Welcome to the CPAS Seminars! This week, 30 November 2023, is a double feature.
Title -- Culturally-appropriate science communication in the South Pacific
Science has a particular method of constructing new knowledge, and science communication is a profession that aims to communicate this knowledge with the general public. Teachers also have a role to play in communicating science to their students, and often science communicators help to bridge the divide between current scientific activities and teachers in the classroom. Studies conducted primarily in Canada have shown that students from non-Western cultural backgrounds face additional barriers when engaging with science in the classroom. While there have been studies in Australia and the broader Pacific region looking at how knowledge is constructed within Indigenous cultures, how this impacts on the engagement of students in a science classroom has not been explored in the region.
