OVERVIEW

Communication is a strategic part of the organizations in our social system. It identifies them, it legitimizes them, it allows them to pursue the goals of any system: to survive, to protect themselves, to get resources,  to expand. The lecture course offers theoretical and practical tools of communication to promote the results in one own's field of work, to reach outside the borders of one own's specialization, to share one own's competencies. 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course intends to develop competencies in the communication and the dissemination of mathematics, with particular respect to the planning of activities, meetings, and events, for different types of audiences: the specialists, the general public, the students.
