Tuesday’s topic: researcher’s engagement in #scicomm. We’ll touch on a few subjects: S1/ why should (or not) researchers get involved? S2/ researcher vs #scicomm skills, what is important to know when engaging the public? S3/ what motivates/prevents researchers engagement?
Well I know I just started, but I will actually pause since it’s a very involving first @ScienceShakers I’m attending!
Kudos to the organizers of this first #scicomm community meeting in Paris #scienceshakers
When I started the @CercleFSER, I tried to look at what was already being done, to not replicate it. Basically I tried to apply this big picture framework I had used in research: are there big holes in what is being done and low hanging fruits that can be leverages?
Monday, first topic: the journey to #scicomm.
There are plenty of ways to be involved in scicomm, as shown by the variety of hosts for this account.
I’ll discuss how I went from research to #scicomm, but I am curious about you.
What is your primary occupation?
If #scicomm is your primary occupation, which background do you have ?
If research is your primary occupation, what kind of #scicomm/outreach are you mostly involved in?
