  1. 1. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc 5 reasons not to communicate nor disseminate Science (in the Net). And a few to do. Universitat Ramon Llull, IQS, 11/6/2015 Miquel Duran, Universitat de Girona miquel.duran@udg.edu http://miquelduran.net http://edunomia.net @miquelduran Presentation available at http://slideshare.net/quelgir
  2. 2. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Strange coincidence on Sun 7 June 2015
  3. 3. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc How does society perceive scientists?
  4. 4. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc The general picture for a scientist is someone: - wearing a lab white coat - with glasses (security or normal) - crazy hair - sometimes big head - normally performing experiments! What about female scientists?
  5. 5. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Does Science Communication require digital skills? Complexities of a 2.0 World!
  6. 6. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Main tools to communicate digitally Social networks: facebook, instagram, linkedin, g+, etc. Microblogging: twitter (account/hashtag) Blogs (personal/groupal/collective) Personal/groupal portal Like in the real world!! Great blog: Xavier Lasauca’s https://lasequantic.wordpress.com
  7. 7. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Should scientists be active in social networks? Do you realize that in the last 3 years… • Almost everyone has a smartphone • Video production and consumption is more easy than ever and sustainable • Bandwith is large enough both at home, at the university and at street level • Brands: Google instead of Coca-Cola, Appe vs IBM • These are to think about a change in assessing Science. • This is me and my digital circumstances
  8. 8. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc But do scientists communicate research or disseminate knowledge?
  9. 9. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Perhaps blogs (short texts+images) are currently losing appeal
  10. 10. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Video: key element to share talks: TED Talks, Pechakucha, etc.
  11. 11. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Many keys and ways for digital communication of science
  12. 12. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc NYT & MOOCs (20/4/13) 2012: The Year of the MOOC Online learning: Campus 2.0 (Nature 13/3/2013) Flipping Chemistry Classrooms C&EN 25/3/2013
  13. 13. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc MOOC “Science Communication 2.0.1” MiriadaX 2013 & 2015 (Spanish) • Almost 15% completion rate, >6000 registered • Awesome experience • Started from a doctoral-level area- independent course • Specific target: graduate students, junior researchers • Reusing, sharing, creating, low-cost production (good enough)
  14. 14. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Cathedra for Science Culture and Digital Communication (@C4DUdG): Toward Science Citizenship
  15. 15. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Project on Magic & Science • Magic of the Periodic Table • I Meeting on Science, Magic and Education • Gamification, mobile apps • The Mathemagics of Science • MOOC on Magic, Science and Confessable Secrets http://magcimooc.net • http://magsci.eu
  16. 16. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Little Quantum Red Riding Hood Is she taking the rational lane or the emotional one? Is the wolf eating her grandma? Answers: Both and both (quantum wolf too!)
  17. 17. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc So here are 5 reasons not to communicate Science... especially in the Net
  18. 18. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc I don’t have any good idea Why don’t you consider Science dissemination as an opportunity for expanding your research activity into teaching and leaving your usual expertise field, while adventuring into new areas?
  19. 19. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc I don’t have any money Why don’t you consider Science dissemination as an opportunity to get some funding through calls, international collaboration, transdisciplinar work?
  20. 20. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc I don’t have time nor energy left Why don’t you consider Science Communication as an opportunity for task cleanup and lean time management?
  21. 21. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc I don’t have enough digital skills Why don’t you consider Science Dissemination as an opportunity to enter the amazing world of the Internet, online learning, open knowledge, social networking, …?
  22. 22. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc I get no recognition Why don’t you consider Science Disseminaton as an opportunity to recharge your personal batteries? (personal note: the number of cycles is limited – like actual chemical batteries)
  23. 23. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc I don’t/I am not … I’m alone I’m shy I don’t know how to start with video I don’t have technical support I’m not fluent in English I hate computers and/or computers hate me I’m underpaid/nonpermanent/part-time I’m tired I’m not young anymore
  24. 24. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Now some commercials What is a quantum chemist like me doing in a the Science & Internet battlefield? MOOC on Magic & Science http://magcimooc.net MetaMOOC “How to build a MOOC on a budget”
  25. 25. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Science does not need digital skills Scientists only communicate research or disseminate plain knowledge Science makes sense with no public communication Really everyone must have scientifc background and intellectual basis Everyone must know what an atom is, and what the Periodic Table of the Elements is Further unlikely clues
  26. 26. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Citizens must be aware of the importance of Science views in all political discussions. Science helps with policies, yet it is not politics. Scienticic citizenship brings about an informed public, i.e., a more democratic society Further likely clues
  27. 27. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc But I have got a special question • Do social networks hinder rational discussion – and hence hinder Scientific Citizenship?
  28. 28. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc and I have got another clue • Every day we wake up with a new digital application of mobile app – or new functionality • Is this contributing to a sustainable science?
  29. 29. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc SO There are many reasons to communicate science in the Net, they are APPEALING Communicating Science means having the right attitude, rather than having the suitable resources. WHY DON’T YOU Start a blog, open a twitter account or set up instragram photostream AND Tackle an idea, talk about an event, deal with a moment in history, criticize science in newspapers and media, curate content AND PLEASE COMMENT my blog post at http://edunomia.net
  30. 30. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Caution Your attitude is a choice! Continued, strong and stressful involvement in Science Communication may cause adiction. Do Clicks & bricks Do MOOCs, books & cooks This presentation and others at http://slideshare.net/quelgir Text licensed CC-BY-SA
  31. 31. @miquelduran Universitat de Girona IQS 11/6/2015#edacc Key ideas to (tweet and to) take away • The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' (I found it!) but 'That's funny ...‘ (Isaasc Asimov) (also “Oh My God!, as noted by Nobel Prize S Glashow) • Education is not a preparation for life. Education is life itself • Thank you!!!!!
