Communicating the science of northern Australia
The Northern Hub is using proven science communication techniques alongside innovative approaches to most effectively deliver research findings including factsheets, diagrams, animations, storymaps and symbols to tell the stories of research in northern Australia.
This transdisciplinary approach has led to uptake by research users, in some cases even before the research is completed. Recently at the Australian Science Communicators Conference, the Hub’s transdisciplinary research approach was presented. This approach brings together knowledge for research users – federal and state government departments, Traditional Owners and land managers – to showcase research results in ways and at times that are most relevant to them.
One area that received great attention was the development of symbols to assist in the knowledge exchange with Traditional Owners. These symbols will be publicly available soon – in the meantime, keep an eye on our website for these tales of impact in the coming months.
