Call for chapter proposals for a new peer-reviewed Springer Nature book: Science + SciComm + Work: A Guide for Teaching Science


Professor Susan Rowland and Associate Professor Louise Kuchel (The University of Queensland) seek chapter idea submissions for Science + SciComm + Work: A Guide for Teaching Science Communication, to be published by Springer Nature in 2021.

This peer-reviewed book is designed to change the way science students learn how to communicate. It will provide examples of active pedagogies that readers can use to teach important, specific aspects of communication. The book will guide meaningful, workplace-relevant teaching and learning of communication theory and practice within university science curricula. We envision that the book could be used by any teaching faculty member who wants to improve their science students’ and their own communication skills.

We currently seek expressions of interest for chapters that explain, in practical terms, how to teach communication in Science coursework. The goal is to produce a set of peer-reviewed “off the shelf” examples of impactful activities that faculty can use, or adapt, when they seek a way to help students learn a particular skill or develop their communication mindset.

Brief expressions of interest are due on September 14, 2020.
