Science Communication: Online and Media Writing (apply by 14th March 2017)
This course will equip participants with the skills they need to write about science and communicate clearly with non-scientists. From identifying a story in a piece of research to shaping the material into engaging text, this course will offer a comprehensive insight into science writing. The course should appeal to current and future science communicators and science writers who wish to hone their skills, as well as scientists who wish to convey their research to non-specialists. The skills taught here will be applicable to all forms of popular science writing, but there is a particular emphasis on online writing.
The course draws on the expertise of the team that delivers UWE's popular and practical Science Communication postgraduate programmes<http://www1.uwe.ac.uk/research/sciencecommunicationunit/coursesandtraining/postgraduatecourses.aspx> and covers a range of topics including: introduction to science writing and guiding principles, spotting a good story, story structure, making your science writing clear and engaging, writing for different audiences, writing about statistics and risk, getting your writing noticed online, effective use of social media, writing an effective press release, tips on writing about different fields of science.
The course is entirely online and taught over a 10-week period. This includes eight weeks of taught material and two private study weeks to enable those working as well as studying to manage their workload. The course will run from 24th April 2017 until 2nd July 2017.
