Join us for an exciting lecture with Jo Røislien on how to get people to listen to what you have to say!
We are drowning in information. So how do you get people to listen to what you have to say? And remember what you said? What is the difference between 'scientific fact' on the one hand and 'science communcation' on the other? No science communcation happens in a vacuum, but takes place within a specific society and a contemporary culture – a culture that is constantly changing. How does this impact the communcation of knowledge?
Through anecdotes, video clips and demonstrations Jo Røislien will talk about his work on disseminating complex information on a large scale to people with little or no preliminary knowledge of the topic. Jo dives into specific communcation challenges they encountered when working on science TV series' such as Siffer, Life on the Line (Med livet som innsats) and Larger than life (Kampen om livet) on NRK, and how these were eventually solved.
The webinar is free and open to all registered members. Not a member yet? Sign up here.
