Concordia's Department of Journalism is offering its fourth intensive and experiential summer school to challenge participants to rethink how science is communicated with society. It will be offered as synchronous online with mainly asynchronous online components before and after.
Throughout the intensive, blended summer school, international graduate students will debate and experiment with the future of hype in science journalism.
With an emphasis on robust, evidence-based science journalism and multimedia techniques such as audio and video, Projected Futures 4 will spark interdisciplinary experimentation to contemplate and create new forms of scientific storytelling.
Top science journalists will help lay the foundations of evidence-based science journalism. By week’s end, participants will be challenged to explore new forms of scientific storytelling. Students emerge knowledgeable and creatively primed to undertake digital-first, open discipline, experimental science journalism.
