The Australian Science Communicator’s inaugural Professional Development Day is a full day of actionable presentations and interactive workshops that you can immediately put into practice!
The event is being held on the waterfront at Sydney’s Darling Harbour at the Australian National Maritime Museum. Check out activities on the weekend in Darling Harbour, in and around Sydney city and more for Sydney to see whether you are tempted to extend your trip.
Please note: Schedule is subject to change with some speakers still to confirm. If your travel plans are based on a specific topic, please check progress with us before committing. Keep in mind that ASC national events are considered the premier #scicomm events and some members reserve annual travel budgets for these events even before we have a program.
