STREAM HOSTED ON THE 6th June
Workshop 1: 12.00pm – 1.30pm
Workshop 2: 2.30pm – 4.00pm
We all hold pieces of the jigsaw that makes up best practice in science communication, and finding ways to more easily collaborate and join our efforts provides for a sum picture greater than any of its parts. Such collaboration needs to occur across state and territory boundaries, between education, science, media/public relations and industry sectors and between key national organisations such as the Academies, Science and Technology Australia, Australian Science Communicators and CSIRO. There are currently a number of networks including the Inspiring Australia officers in each state and territories and nationally, and other federal, state and territory government networks, as well as a national science communications community that cross media, education and private enterprise.
Collaboration clearly makes a lot of sense, so what is currently preventing these and other networks better collaborating and maximising their impacts? And do networks make it harder for non-aligned individuals to participate?
This workshop will seek to map better ways to bring those jigsaw puzzle pieces together to collaborate nationally, examine what can realistically be achieved, and discuss what will indicators of success look like?
