I am writing to tell you about a new postgraduate course in Science Education and Communication at the University of Glasgow that we hope will be of interest to you or your colleagues. Please forward this information as appropriate.
In September 2008, the Interdisciplinary Centre for Research and Teaching in STEM Education at the University of Glasgow in Scotland will launch a new postgraduate programme in science education and communication. The programme covers the communication and teaching of the traditional science disciplines, as well as engineering, mathematics and technology.
The programme, entitled MSc in Inter-Professional Science Education and Communication, will be of particular interest to professional science communicators and science educators (science writers or broadcasters, teachers, university lecturers, etc.). It is also likely to be of benefit to anyone who wishes to communicate science effectively to audiences including scientists, students, representatives of the private and public sector, the media and the general public. The programme has been specifically designed to enhance learners' effectiveness and efficiency in science communication. As suggested by the programme title, it also aims to support learners in developing working relationships with teachers, scientists and other science education and communication professionals.
Please find attached a leaflet providing further information on the programmes, including a web link. Applicants can apply online at the following address:
The teaching team looks forward to receiving your application or enquiries.
