About the Training Navigator

RETHINK has aimed at contributing to a comprehensive understanding of science communication in the context of ongoing (digital) change. To bring the insights about the new and emerging science communication landscape across, the RETHINK team has developed this SciComm Training Navigator. The navigator entails a variety of training resources that can be used in a broad range of training settings from science communication graduate programs on Bachelor and Master level over further education of science communication professionals to workshops and trainings for scientists.

The SciComm Training Navigator is much like a map, helping you and your students navigate the complex world of science communication today. In the form of an interactive PDF, the navigator features twelve different activities meant to build on three targeted competencies of a good science communicator. Both the competencies and the activities were created based on insights collected through RETHINK's research, and these insights are also outlined for reference in the navigator.

The navigator is as interactive as you'd like. Use it like an offline website, or simply as an index to all the resources available in the navigator folder. Clicking on the menu items at the top will take you to the respective sections, while clicking on the colourful shapes in each section will take you to subsections offering more information about the topics you are interested in. Clicking on buttons in the navigator will open that resource in your PDF reader and to return to the navigator, simply click on the RETHINK logo at the top.
