Kiel University gives out first Certifikate Science Communication

After meticulous planning, organisation and research the happy event took place on 7 February 2019: Annika Fediuk, doctoral candidate in applied geophysics, and Mirco Mührenberg, master student in sociology and political science, were the first recipients of the “Certificate Science Communication.” They received their certificates from Prof. Dr. Ilka Parchmann, Vice-President of Kiel University for science communication, and Prof. Dr. Karin Schwarz, Vice-President of Kiel University for the support of young researchers.

Annika Fediuk has participated in the Science Show – as a host and as a lecturer – several times and has spoken about her doctoral research project on geoelectrics and ground-penetrating radar in the shallow water zone: “When I said “Hello everybody” while standing in the biggest lecture theatre of the Audimax and I received a cheerful “Hallo” in return I realized how far I have come during the last few years.” Since she is often asked by nonscientists what she is doing while working on-site she is grateful for the experiences she has made during the Science Shows.

Mirco Mührenberg, too, has learned during the Science Show how to speak about the topic of his Bachelor’s thesis on racism in James Bond movies before a big amateur audience at the Night of the Profs: “My lecture at the Night of the Profs was definitely my personal highlight”, he declares. “During that evening I benefited from all the experience I collected during the certificate programme at the Key Skills Centre.”

“Every graduate of the programme develops her or his own profile. The suggestions of the participant are discussed in the accompanying conversations and taken into account as far as possible, be it speaking or lecturing, using digital media or designing exhibitions.”, explains Ulf Evert, co-initiator of the certificate programme and organisor of the Science Show. Since 2010 the Science Show gives students and doctoral candidates the opportunity to learn how to present complex research topics to a non-expert audience in an easily understandable way. This has led to the creation of the “Certificate Science Communication”. The special areas “Writing and “(Digital) Presenting” have now been added to the special area “Speaking”.

“A profound identification with the role of “Science Communicator” can be part of a responsible and appreciatve approach to one’s own knowledge. If you actively take up this part you can influence what other people learn about your work,” explains Dr. Sabine Milde, Chief Operating Officer of Kiel University’s Graduate Center.
