UWA Science Communication Seminar

This Friday Emeritus Professor Léonie Rennie will discuss her work with informal science education.

Effective informal science education requires two-way communication, or dialogue, between the source of the science information, such as a science centre or a community program, and the potential learners, be they children or adults. This presentation explores how informal sources of science learning package and present science information in narrative or story-form, as exhibits or other forms of media, how these are interpreted by a heterogeneous public and the factors that determine successful communication.
All welcome!

Where:  The Centre for Learning Technologies, UWA
When:  Friday April 27, 4 - 5 pm
Drinks and nibbles provided.

Next Week:
PhD candidate Zarin Salter discusses her research on the effects of intergenerational influences and pro-environmentalism on sustainability education at school and at home.
