when 5 November 2017 - 10 November 2017
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 200

Education and sustainability are key concepts nowadays, whether they are used separately or as interrelated and interdependent. But do researchers in Education promote the sustainability of their research and findings? To be sustainable, research in Education must be understandable, accessible, applicable and, most important, a topic of discussion out of the closed research community.

The main purpose of this programme is to develop the participants’ competences in Science Communication aiming at different audiences (e.g., politicians, academics, teachers and students and public in general) by (i) using different approaches (e.g., press releases, infographics), and (ii) adopting diverse media channels (e.g., YouTube, Facebook, newspapers).

It will involve different experts and trainers [keynote speakers, professors/monitors and post-doctoral researchers] in Science Communication and research in Education that stand out for communicating science in a creative way.
