Newest version of the “Ghosts” talk

This is an updated version of the presentation in which I introduce a “new model of the relationship between science and communication,” as presented to the Leibniz Association in June, 2021.

The talk is intended for researchers at every career stage, science communicators, communication trainers, other teachers, anyone interested in scientific thinking, and a wider group of stakeholders in research, communication and education

This serves as the theoretical introduction to my courses in writing, presentation skills and other types of communication.

Please get in touch if you are interested in learning more, have comments, or would like to join a group of scientists and teachers who hope to institutionalize this type of training in research organizations and science curricula.

It’s Friday… so it’s brand new cartoons!

A new model of the relationship between science and communication

This is a version of the “How to see Ghosts” talk, which I use at the beginning of communications training courses. Its purpose is to present a model of science communication that I have developed as the basis of these courses. I think this model has profound implications for the way science is communicated to very diverse audiences, the way science is taught, and the way research is conducted.

This version of the presentation was delivered as the first half of an on-line workshop for the FZU in Prague, May 5, 2021.
