Learning objectives

The main objective of the course is to be supportive and contribute to teaching and training for students who wish to complete their responsibilities towards the teaching and communication of science. The course is also designed for those who, despite having a basic scientific training, wants to become familiar with the communication of knowledge and for those who, despite having a liberal arts education, or historical, want to extend their skills in science.

The course aims to provide practical experience in communicating scientific material to different audiences through different channels of communication: the written and oral presentation interactive. The student is led to acquire specific skills with educational tools to effectively communicate science themes.
