New scholarly volume on science communication training published under editorship of LSC’s Todd Newman

A new volume, “Theory and Best Practices in Science Communication Training,” was recently published under the editorship of Todd Newman, assistant professor in the Department of Life Sciences Communication.

The book reports on the growing body of research in science communication training, and identifies best practices for communication training programs around the world. It includes contributions from researchers and practitioners from around the world, including a chapter written by LSC professor and chair Dominique Brossard and LSC postdoc Emily Howell on how scientists use social media.

This isn’t Newman’s first contribution to the science communication literature. He is the co-author of “Brand,” published in 2018, which examines the role of brand strategy in society, including scientific debates. He teaches courses on science communication, strategic communication and marketing for LSC.
