Science Communication

This module will provide students with the opportunity to study the theories, academic- and research-based approaches and strategies that are used to communicate scientific information, and to apply this understanding to generating effective materials in different formats.

Students will critically examine existing examples of effective and less effective practice, and use this insight to develop their own skills in writing and communicating about academic research. 

The module will be delivered by a combination of interactive lectures, smaller seminars, and online resources.  Students will produce their coursework via collaboration with an active research team in the School. This will develop their awareness of the research environment as well as developing transferable skills.
