  1. 1. Presentation ic201.5.2Relevant references in science dissemination C4DUdG, Universitat de Girona Miquel Duran, UdG @miquelduran miquel.duran@udg.edu http://miquelduran.net License: Creative Commons CC-BY-SA
  2. 2. Flow• Why communicate?• This is a digital world (too)• An open knowledge society• Outreach, public awareness, feekback• Our particular case• Final thoughts
  3. 3. What does science communication in today’s world mean? Above all: be active and have an attitude towards sharing, collaborating and curating And please don’t forget to provide yourself with basic Digital skills – and ask if necessary
  4. 4. Little Science Communicator Red Riding Hood• The constant change due to heavy use of IT in research leads sometimes to forget that important things (reflexion) must be prioritized wrt urgent things (hurry).• Granma Society waits for LRRH to bring her the Knowledge Basket, but Wolf Twodotzero tricks her so, instead of tanking the Reflection lane, takes the Hurry trail..
  5. 5. Spiros Kitsinelis: why communicate science? The art of science communication• To attract more students in the science departments of the university• To create a knowledge based economy and render countries more competitive in today’s world• To get public support for more government research funding• To create a more technology literate workforce for the private sector tht wants to innovate.• Because the public needs to be informed and involved• People will only be liberated from false ideas, prejudices etc. only if they have scientific knowledge on their side.• Distinction between interesting and attractive events.
  6. 6. Communicating Science (Kitsinelis)• Making it intesting: on the difference between being interested and making it interesting (opening the door) – Interested because of scencetid culture increase, science awareness, well-informed citizenship• On the relevance of what is being communicated (rational) - serious• On making it attractive (emotional) – fun, games
  7. 7. Flow• Why communicate?• This is a digital world (too)• An open knowledge society• Outreach, public awareness, feekback• Our particular case• Final thoughts
  8. 8. Flow• Why communicate?• This is a digital world (too)• An open knowledge society• Outreach, public awareness, feekback• Our particular case• Final thoughts
  9. 9. And now researchers’ frontier: Outreach• The guardian: Going viral: Using social media to publicise academic research• http://www.guardian.co.uk/higher-education- network/blog/2011/apr/11/communications-marketing-management- admin-and-services
  10. 10. Outreach: compulsory?• Outreach is more and more relevant• It’s a duty of (senior) researchers• It’s interesting (and perhaps fun) for junior researchers and PhD students• Pushed by governments… but no much money• Loved by people out there• Universities, learned societies, associations, museums, … a network of disseminators• Social communication of research, science,knowledge• Leads to a well-informed society• Provides publications beyond scholarly papers - +cv
  11. 11. How we (scientists) can communicate• By origin – Personal – Groupal – Corporate• By destination – Indexed Journals / Scholar Publications – Science journals for scientists (eg Scientific American) – Science General for the Public (eg Quo, La Recherche) – Communicacion of Science Culture – Citizens Outreach – Childrens, Youth Outreach
  12. 12. How we (scientists) can communicate• Personal – Shows – Theater – Performances• By message – Own personal: PhD / researcher blog – News curation on a particular field of science – News curation on policy, funding, etc. – Contributing to shared blog – Contributing to research group
  13. 13. Relevant article• More than a blog: Should science bloggers stick to popularizing science and fighting creationism, or does blogging have a wider role to play in the scientific discoursehan a blog:?• http://www.nature.com/embor/journal/v12/n11/full/ embor2011201a.html?WT.ec_id=EMBOR-201111
  14. 14. The Guardian• How should researchers talk about science to the public?• http://www.guardian.co.uk/higher-education- network/blog/2012/feb/20/making-science-accessible
  15. 15. Public Engagementhttps://www.publicengagement.ac.uk
  16. 16. Engaging thru the Internet http://Science140.org (+ ciencia140 + catciencia140.net)
  17. 17. Humour is very important! Famelab http://famelab.org
  18. 18. Outreach possibilities• What? – Our work – Someone elses work – Sound knowledge – Citizen Science – Public awareness• On the spot – Demonstrative – Pedagogic/teaching Spectacular• Internet – Blogging/website – Science Blogs @ Newspapers Contests – Etc
  19. 19. Flow• Why communicate?• This is a digital world (too)• An open knowledge society• Outreach, public awareness, feekback• Our particular case• Final thoughts
  20. 20. Outreach in an actual group• Two communications buy the @c4dudg to International Science Communication meeting, Nancy - and INTED, València: – PPT "Is digital communication an actual, clever way to disseminate science?” – PPT "Imagine! - some trends in recreational science and the pursue of science careers”• See them in http://slideshare.net/quelgir
  21. 21. C4D UdGhttp://c4d.udg.edu
  22. 22. Let me bring my own case• Levels of action: – Coordinating UdG’s science dissemination – Involving in C4D’s activities – Personal activities• Types of action: – Communicating results of research (academic) – Talks (e.g. quasicrystalls) – Outreach (Researchers’ Night, Science Fairs) – Shows (e.g. Magic and Science)• Reason: because we need to increase Society’s Scientific Culture, and we must promote Science awareness.
  23. 23. And also have a look to …• Take a look at my blog Edunomia, category “comciencia” – http://edunomia.net• And also my mesoblog “Molecularity Report” – http://edunoming.wordpress.com• And even my curation space in Scoop.It “Impromptu topics” – http://www.scoop.it/u/quelet
  24. 24. Engaging thru recreational science http://Estalella20.net
  25. 25. Flow• Why communicate?• This is a digital world (too)• An open knowledge society• Outreach, public awareness, feekback• Our particular case• Final thoughts
