What we learned at SCANZ

Sciblogger Michael Edmonds has been busy writing up his reflections on sessions from the SCANZ conference that was held on Feb 22 and 23 at Te Papa Museum in Wellington.

The conference, which I presented at on the subject of science and social media, featured some excellent speakers and case studies on effective science communication projects.

We’ve posted recordings I’ve made from some of the presentations on the SCANZ website. Apologies for the less than great audio quality and the truncated Mark Quigley podcast.

My highlights included Quigley, fellow-Sciblogger Shaun Hendy and Steve Maharey.

If you haven’t come across SCANZ and you work in or around the science sector and are interested in how science is communicated, check them out.
