COMSTECH SCIENCE COMMUNICATION COURSE
COMSTECH Science Communication Advisory Committee suggests science communication course as a subject to be introduced by the universities of OIC member states.
Science communication is the culmination of all procedures used to integrate scientific culture and information into popular culture. Students will learn about the best methods for communicating science to a range of audiences in this course, including their direct colleagues in the field, other scientists in related fields, media representatives, and the general public. The program will place a lot of emphasis on verbal and visual communication strategies that are effective. This course is intended for any media or scientific student interested in research, education, or extension; it is not discipline-specific.
Not everyone wants to write for a public audience, and not everyone can do it well, explains why science communication is important. Yet it’s apparent that those who can have a place at the academy. It is crucial from a college’s perspective to widely disseminate faculty research. Legislators’ enthusiasm for public institutions is increased by popular backing.
If we see things from an even wider angle, we can see that researchers owe a large audience an explanation that almost anybody can understand. Research should be available to everyone if the goal of academic knowledge is to advance human knowledge, ostensibly for the benefit of all.
- Students will comprehend how scientific knowledge is organized, used, and disseminated in relation to historical practices of science communication.
- Students will learn specifics on how to prepare a manuscript, communicate with media platforms and editorial staff.
- Students will learn how to convey expert knowledge to audiences who are both non-specialists.
- Through oral and written presentations to technical and non-technical audiences, students will improve communication skills for science.
- The search for and use of resources will be taught to students when they prepare science articles, proposals, or public materials.
- The role of science and scientists in the local, national, and international communities will be analyzed and critically evaluated by students.
- During class discussions, oral presentations, and poster presentations, students will apply the knowledge they have learned in order to think more clearly, solve problems more effectively, and make better decisions.
Recognizing the importance of science communication for the socio-economic development of OIC member states. COMSTECH recommends your prestigious institution to go through this course and offer it as an elective, one semester course in the last semester to the students of material sciences and social sciences at BS level.
A short term executive 3-day course has also been finalized open to all participants.
