Using (Social) Media for Open Science Communication and Community Participation


In this workshop, we will explore the connection of science communication and Open Science, with a focus on disseminating research findings and skills within the scientific community. We will talk about the value of engaging with (social) media both actively for science communication and actively or passively for your personal progress as a scientist; and how to get started with this. For example, we will look at using blogs to simultaneously learn new skills yourself and to teach these to other researchers, and at using twitter threads to disseminate such knowledge and research findings effectively within the scientific community.
