GlobalSCAPE has been seeking to learn about the perspectives of science communicator’s across the globe, especially those working in countries that often do not receive as much attention from the global community as they deserve. 

In addition to gathering some of those perspectives for 12 months from 2021 to 2022, we have developed an academic science communication module and also delivered media and writer based workshops through our colleagues Springer Nature.  Alongside those deliverables, our colleagues from Leiden University’s Science communication and Society department have also designed a set of globally relevant workshops that focus on linking science communication practitioners with some of the latest research in science communication. 

These workshops are provided as an open access resource, freely available for anyone to download and adapt and use within their own contexts.  Before the release of these workshops, we will be delivering a set of free online sessions in February 2023, for all interested practitioners to attend and experience the workshops first hand.  We hope that attendees can also offer any thoughts or feedback on how they feel the workshops align with the contexts of their own nation, culture or field of science communication.

There are two workshops being offered.

  • Global Relevance in Science Communication 
  • Justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI) in Science Communication

 

Global Relevance in Science Communication explores how science communicators can practice their work in a globally relevant way that acknowledges and reflects the efforts of science communicators across the globe, as well as the diverse audiences and institutions they work with. 

Justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI) in Science Communication considers how we can focus on JEDI to deliver more inclusive and responsive science communication with and for our varied global communities.  To ensure that as a global field, science communication strives to promote equitable practices and can contribute to global citizens as a force for justice in the world. 

Trainer: Jon Chase 

Jon Chase is a science communicator, author and science rapper who is currently working at Leiden University, Netherlands as a project scientist on the EU funded GlobalSCAPE project.  He has spent more than a decade doing science shows at venues across the British Isles to all audiences and has co-authored a number of popular science books, including The Science of Star Wars and The Science of Jurassic World.  He has also presented and talked about science and technology on numerous television and YouTube channels. In 2017 he was awarded the UK’s Josh Award in Science Communication but he’s perhaps best known for his science raps, which he has produced for organisations including NASA and the BBC

Workshop format

Each workshop is delivered ONLINE via Zoom, and in two parts, of 2-hours each.  There are two main formats available for this.

Option 1: Both parts of the workshop are delivered in the same day.  The first part is in the morning and the second part is in the afternoon. Of course, the specific timings depend on which timezone you are in but we are running the workshop multiple times to cater for different time zones. However, regardless of your own timezone, you are welcome to choose whichever time suits your schedule best.  Please see the specific dates and timings below. 

Option 2: The two parts of the workshop take place at the same time of the day but on two consecutive days.  As in option 1, the specific timings depend on which timezone you are in but we are running the workshop multiple times to cater for different time zones. Again, regardless of your own timezone, you are welcome to choose whichever time suits your schedule best. Please see the specific dates and timings below.
