This webinar will reflect on a new Lifeology flashcard course focused on an inclusive history of science communication (see https://app.us.lifeology.io/viewer/lifeology/scicomm/a-brief-history-of-science-communication). In this course, the audience joins four teenagers who are visiting a museum display on the history of scientific controversies. From there, they go on a colourful virtual journey, revisiting eventful times, pertinent events, and influential people that shaped the relationship between science and society in countries and cultures around the world. The webinar will reflect on the topic of the course, as well as the process of creating such a course.
