Associate lecturer in communication skills in conservation/ecology, Anglia Ruskin University

Application Deadline: 
1 Sep 2019

 

This is an excellent opportunity for someone with experience in conservation (either academic or in industry) to gain some paid teaching experience at Master’s level. The module “Communication Skills for Conservation” is a 30 credit compulsory module for both of our Masters degrees; MSc Animal Behaviour: Applications for Conservation and MSc Applied Wildlife Conservation.

This module focuses on how to effectively communicate scientific information and conservation stories to a range of audiences, from children and the general public to NGO’s and policymakers, using visual, verbal and written mediums in government reports and on social media. One of the biggest challenges that we face as scientists is being able to translate complex, sometimes uncertain information into language understandable to a range of audiences with little or no specialist knowledge. As scientists or conservationists, if we want to reach our goal of educating the public or effecting societal change, we need to be able to convey information that engages our target audiences. Roles and responsibilities will include teaching face to face, participating in webinars and online discussions and marking the two assignments for the module. Please contact dannielle.green@anglia.ac.uk for more information about the post.
