This month’s #onsci is is being led by Ni Wayan Ratnamaheshwari (@NINjAitsu), Ratih (@squirateeh), David Wong (@PhotoEcologist) and Dan Craig (@talldancraig) who are all currently undertaking an intensive on science and social media at ANU. The topic up for discussion is “Outreach vs Inreach”
Summary: This month on #onsci, we would like to question about the diversity of roles of science communicators. So far science communicators have spent a lot of time focusing on communicating science to the public. Outreach science communication seems to be trending well in the popular media. But can “inreach” be the new frontier in science communication? We would like to hear your experience as science communicators not only in breaking down barriers between scientists and the public, but also between scientists and science communicators, and often the scientists themselves.
Join us this Thursday 4th April at 9pm AEDT (11am BST, 6am EDT).
