Enseignement ATHENS - TP44 : Mediating International and Scientific Communication

Domaine > Sciences économiques et sociales.

Descriptif

Prerequisites:

Participants must have an intermediate to good level of English to assure comprehension and effective participation.

Objectives:

In this highly interactive course, learners will have the opportunity to explore various mediation pathways for sharing and relaying their own cultural experience and scientific knowledge. The first half of the course will cover a range of popular and modern intercultural communication models that will be used to foster collaborative interaction, encourage conceptual dialogue, and facilitate a pluricultural space.

Then, in the second half of the course, learners will use these intercultural foundations to gain hands-on experience showcasing their scientific work to professional peers, the general public, as well as the media. Participants will gain key takeaways for adapting one’s language to break down complex information, facilitating communication in delicate situations, mediating Q&A sessions, and adapting their message during media interviews.

This course also integrates our MOOC “Promote your Scientific Results” on Coursera as pedagogical support material. Participants are able to access the video content free of charge when registering for this online course.  

Course exam:

Trainees in “pods” will take turns having the opportunity to be interviewed by the “media” (fellow classmates). Interviewees will be evaluated by both their peers as well as the course trainers using a clear evaluation grid. Tailored feedback from the instructors will also be given.
