Short description

The EU-funded project TRESCA has developed a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to directly investigate the question "What can be done when science and facts are questioned?". The aim is to improve current science communication practices.
The MOOC consists of seven modules made up of instructional videos and learning resources. Participants learn how digitization has influenced the development and communication of scientific knowledge. The course focuses on how information overload makes it difficult for the public to value information. All topics are discussed from the perspective of three key stakeholders, namely (social) scientists, journalists and policymakers. It also addresses how the interest groups connect with each other and with citizens. The aim is to find out what drives public trust and how people and organizations can earn and maintain trust through improved communication practices!

The course is free and available to anyone who is interested!
