Dear ASC-List,

Today's member guest is the chair in Social Performance in the Centre for
Coal Seam Gas and holds a joint appointment with the Centre for Social
Responsibility in Mining. He is an engineer-turned-sociologist with degrees
from MIT (physics), the University of California-Berkeley (energy and
resources), and Stanford University (sociotechnical studies). His focus is
communication among experts and relative non-experts in settings ranging
from steel mills and public hearings to doctors’ offices, press
conferences, and university classrooms. Rifkin served as Director of the
Science Communication Program in the Faculty of Science at the University
of New South Wales from 2000 to 2010. The Program has had an impact on more
than 10,000 university students, from undergraduate through to PhD level.
He has fostered development of similar programs around Australia and in
Latin America and Japan. He has been recognised as one of Australia’s most
innovative and effective university instructors on a number of occasions
over the past fifteen years, including two Vice-Chancellor’s teaching
awards and a national citation. He has over 100 academic and educational
publications, including multi-media. He has received more than $2 million
in grant funding. Join us online today to meet long term ASCer A/Prof Will
