Effective science communication is vital - not only for explaining the importance and impact of research to the public, media and funders, but also for cross-disciplinary collaboration. Designed for scientists and others with a strong scientific background in academic, industrial, commercial and professional settings, this course focuses on narrative and language for effective and inspiring communication, and examines how the changing media landscape is providing new ways to tell compelling stories about science.
