Dr Meredith Castles takes an unorthodox approach to communicating science, she livestreams a ‘conversational science’ show to anyone who wants to learn. Essentially, she crowdsources science information from around the world by discussing what people find interesting using Twitch, an online gaming entertainment platform.
In this episode we delve into the world of online communities and how to create safe, inclusive and educational spaces – alongside learning about some innovative research being conducted into crowdsourcing informal information to keep education relevant in our world of fast-moving technology.
