International Science Council (ISC) Webinar Series “Talk Back Better”: Understanding Common Misconceptions about Audiences


The International Science Council (ISC) launches the Talk Back Better webinar series on 26 May with Webinar #1 “Understanding Common Misconceptions about Audiences”.

The series will provide five weeks of different perspectives on Science Engagement and science communication, discursive analysis and practice tips from researchers.

Webinar #1: “Understanding Common Misconceptions about Audiences”

The first webinar on 26 May is about the under-conceptualisation of “audiences” and “publics”. We often talk about a general public as if it was a single target group. But rather, we need to understand that this single target group does not exist, but is made up of different, diverse audiences.

These and other aspects will be discussed in this webinar, by Jenni Metcalfe, Dan Williams and Felix Bast, among others.

You can find more information about the webinar and the series here.
