Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course gives an introduction to the objectives and methods of Science communication. Students will gain an understanding on various approaches, formats and channels for science communication from invited guest speakers (Barbara Streicher - ScienceCenterNetzwerk, Bernhard Weingartner - Wissenschaftskommunikator, Karoline Iber - Kinderbüro Universität Wien, Marianne Korner - Schüler*innenforschungszentrum, tba).
Throughout the course students will develop specific science communication activities in small groups which relate to their academic work and interests.These science communication projects will be implemented in e.g. workshops or interactive talks.
After the course students will be able to communicate their research to defined groups of the general public using different methods and formats. They will have improved in their presentation and communication techniques and will have enhanced their collaboration skills with their peers and experts from these fields.
This course is open to PhD and MSc students from physics and related subjects from the natural sciences, where possible students are encouraged to base the science communication activities on their own research projects/areas. The language of communication is English.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

There will be continuous evaluation throughout the course. Each student is required to develop science communication activities in three different formats e.g. interactive instructional experiments, poster, presentation, quizz, animation, video. The activities developed in small teams will have to be presented in the seminar. All students are asked to provide feedback to their peers in addition to the input from experts. The final activities and materials should be presented to the intended target audience. The design of the activities is aimed for use beyond the seminar.
In case COVID safety regulations force us to switch to distance learning we will continue the sessions on the given dates and times via Zoom on the Moodle platform.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Students should be able to understand the basic concepts of science communication. Students should be able to develop their own science communication material and they should be able to conduct science communication.
Requirement for a positive grade: attendance (at most three sessions can be missed with prior explanatory statement), substitute achievements by agreement, developing and presenting science communication activities in three different formats.
The partial achievements are assessed according to the scientific soundness, accessibility for the intended target audience and response to feedback:
- Active participation (peer feedback): 20 points
- Development of science communication activity: 15 points for each format
- Presentation of science communication activities: 35 points

The grading will follow the scheme:
- 1 (excellent) 100 – 90 points
- 2 (good) 89-81 points
- 3 (satisfactory) 80 – 71 points
- 4 (sufficient) 70 – 61 points
- 5 (insufficient) 60 – 0 points

Prüfungsstoff

There will be continuous examination throughout the course. Examination is based on the introductions of the guest speakers and the feedback on the developed materials. The content of the science communication activities is based on the research interests of the participants of the seminar.

Literatur

Reading material will be provided during the course on the Moodle platform.
