Once again this fall, IECA Executive Director Mark S. Meisner will be teaching The IECA’s online course Environmental Communication: Research Into Practice.

If you are interested in learning more about the field or brushing up, please have a look at the details of the course. Here is the brief description.

This course will explore how the most relevant research and theory from fields such as communication, psychology, sociology, and political science can be used to improve the practice of science, sustainability and environmental communication. Participants will get an overview of the field as we will examine how language, images, and media come together in advocacy and social marketing campaigns, and other forms of public participation for environmental protection. We will consider how communication is used to accomplish practical goals, as well as how it affects people’s perceptions of nature and environmental affairs. To do this we will use readings, examples, cases, recorded lectures, discussions, and the insights of leaders in the field. Participants will have the opportunity to work on communication projects that are relevant to their specific interests.

In case you are wondering, this is a full-length course that runs twice a week for 10 weeks.

Registration is limited to about 20 people and it is already one-third full.
