When: Wednesday 19th February, 13:50pm-15:25pm
Have we made progress in the last eight years? Updating findings of the 2012 participatory evaluation of the ASC conference.
In 2012 I facilitated a participatory evaluation session at the ASC conference, some key outcomes: these were framed as a vision for the future in which scicom had been effective – have we made progress on some of these themes? Are other themes now more important? What aspects are within science communicators’ control and which aren’t? How do these align with other priorities?
What will participants gain from attending your session?
– understanding of purposes of science communication, clarifying own perspectives & comparing with others
– developing shared understanding of indicators for tracking progress in science communication, potentially for people to then use in their own work
– evaluation of the conference in a participatory format while people are gathered, more engaging than survey.
