Scientific research and technological development have far-reaching impacts on society, especially if they comprise of highly innovative and (potentially) controversial activities (e.g. synthetic biology, neuroscience, nanotechnology, smart cities, reproductive technologies, etc.). How does society actually look at these research efforts and tech developments? Societal visions have a major influence on the direction that scientific research and technology development take in the near future. That is why communication products and processes about and related to science and technology are crucial.
In this course you become familiar with a number of science communication models, concepts and theories, and you will learn to recognise their application in practice. Through individual and group assignments you become familiar with the practical side of science communication, varying from science journalism to facilitating societal dialogues about science and technology.

Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
