Evaluating Science Communication: A Professional Workshop

Bookings open at http://www.trybooking.com/25816

18 June 2012, Melbourne

• We all want to do it, some of us attempt to do it, but how many of us evaluate our science communication activities effectively?

• Evaluation of public engagement and science communication activities is often a last minute thought, done poorly or in a way that doesn’t align with objectives.

• This hands-on workshop will take you  beyond evaluation basics and get you started on ways to produce meaningful findings.

• Bring your own case studies  that you would like to, or wished you had, evaluated.

• You will get a chance to scrutinise your objectives, work out what you are trying to evaluate and understand some of the best practice evaluation approaches.

Course presenter Dr Cobi Smith, RiAus, has extensive experience in evaluation methodologies and recently presented her research at the PCST2012 Congress.

Venue: Graduate House, The University of Melbourne

Date: 18 June 2012

Time: 5:30pm – 8:30pm

Cost: ASC Members - $20 / Non Members - $35

A light supper will be provided.
