Gareth Mitchell, a lecturer in Imperial College’s Science Communication group and presenter of the BBC’s Digital Planet, will lead the workshop. In his academic and broadcast work, Gareth is interested in the social media and the convergence of print, broadcast and online. Though new media will be addressed extensively in the main WSCJ sessions, this workshop should be an initial opportunity to evaluate science news values in the context of today’s rapidly evolving electronic media.
