On 17 June 2020, PCST organized a webinar for people interested in teaching of science communication at Masters’ and PhD level.
They invited a panel of experts to share their ideas about the potential of setting up a network or interest group on this topic.
The webinar resulted from a workshop, originally planned to take place at the PCST 2020 conference, that was the initiative of Dr Luisa Massarani.
A recording of this webinar is now available at https://youtu.be/UNgQ0OegKH8
The speakers were:
Dr Melanie Smallman: Learning from past experience with the European Network of Science Communication Teachers (ENSCOT)
Dr Frans van Dam: Interests, preferences and concerns of science communication lecturers regarding a network – brief feedback from current research
Dr Elizabeth Stevenson: The business model for MSc programmes in science communication in the UK – a driver for excellence
Dr Luisa Massarani: The need and potential for such a network – A perspective from Latin America
Dr Marina Joubert: The value of expert input when setting up a new master’s programme in science communication
Future webinars on this topic will be announced via the PCST discussion list.
