Communication skills are an essential part of all university degree courses, and chemistry is no exception. The aspects of communication skills identified in this book are: * Information retrieval * written delivery * visual delivery * oral delivery * team work and * problem solving Material includes background information for tutors and a detailed tutor's guide, as well as suggestions for sources of extra material or alternative ways of running the exercise. Trialled at several institutions, this book can be used as a modular text, or as a set of "stand alone" exercises. It is aimed at students in the penultimate year of a chemistry degree.

Chemistry plays a critical role in daily life, impacting areas such as medicine and health, consumer products, energy production, the ecosystem, and many other areas. Communicating about chemistry in informal environments has the potential to raise public interest and understanding of chemistry around the world. However, the chemistry community lacks a cohesive, evidence-based guide for designing effective communication activities. This report is organized into two sections. Part A: The Evidence Base for Enhanced Communication summarizes evidence from communications, informal learning, and chemistry education on effective practices to communicate with and engage publics outside of the classroom; presents a framework for the design of chemistry communication activities; and identifies key areas for future research. Part B: Communicating Chemistry: A Framework for Sharing Science is a practical guide intended for any chemists to use in the design, implementation, and evaluation of their public communication efforts.

Communication Skills for the Environmental technician This book provides environmental technology students with an enjoyable way to quickly master the basic communication skills needed by the environmental technician. Like all the books in the critically acclaimed Preserving the Legacy series, it follows a rapid-learning modular format featuring learning objectives, summaries, chapter-end reviews, practice questions, and skill-building activities. The only book available that specifically addresses the communication responsibilities of the environmental technician, it offers a thorough review of corporate communication basics and covers the environmental documents commonly generated by technicians. Communication Skills for the Environmental Technician features: * Advice on foundation reading and technical writing skills, including mastery of outlining and grammar awareness * Chapters on writing skills for business letters and memos; technical documents such as contingency plans, logbooks, and field notes; and completion and filing procedures for numerous reporting forms * In-depth coverage of oral communication skills, both for formal presentations and informal conferencing * Specifics of the job search: creating portfolios, writing resumes and cover letters, and performing well in the interview setting With its comprehensive coverage and quick-reference format, Communication Skills for the Environmental Technician is also a handy resource for any environmental technician needing a helpful refresher or useful working reference. The HAZARDOUS MATERIALS TRAINING AND RESEARCH INSTITUTE (HMTRI), recognized by agencies including the EPA, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, was established in 1987 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, with the intention of promoting worker protection and the maintenance of a clean and safe environment through education and training.

Some 70,000 hazardous materials are in various workplaces across the country...regulated by the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard not only for chemical manufacturers and distributors, but soon, for all other U.S. manufacturers—and many others as well. This guide provides a step-by-step understanding of the standard. With this book you should be able to plan, organize and operate your company's Hazard Communication Program...to protect your employees (and your company) as required by OSHA. This handbook is especially intended for use by industrial hygienists, safety directors, safety engineers, occupational health departments, managers, environmental engineers, legal staff, and consultants. Hazard Communication and OSHA Requirements explains carefully in non-legalistic terms just what will be required, and when. But even more important, it explains in detail, with examples where appropriate.

This book is an enthusiastic account of Pierre Laszlo’s life and pioneering work on catalysis of organic reactions by modified clays, and his reflections on doing science from the 1960s to 1990s. In this autobiography, readers will discover a first-hand testimony of the chemical revolution in the second half of the 20th century, and the author’s perspective on finding a calling in science and chemistry, as well as his own experience on doing science, teaching science and managing a scientific career. During this period, Pierre Laszlo led an academic laboratory and worked also in three different countries: the US, Belgium and France, where he had the opportunity to meet remarkable colleagues. In this book, he recalls his encounters and collaborations with important scientists, who shaped the nature of chemistry at times of increased pace of change, and collates a portrait of the worldwide scientific community at that time. In addition, the author tells us about the turns and twists of his own life, and how he ended up focusing his research on clay based chemistry, where clay minerals were turned in his lab to catalysis of key chemical transformations. Given its breath, the book offers a genuine information on the life and career of a chemist, and it will appeal not only to scientists and students, but also to historians of science and to the general reader.

This book describes the development of the scientific article from its modest beginnings to the global phenomenon that it has become today. Their analysis of a large sample of texts in French, English, and German focuses on the changes in the style, organization, and argumentative structure of scientific communication over time. They also speculate on the future currency of the scientific article, as it enters the era of the World Wide Web. This book is an outstanding resource text in the rhetoric of science, and will stand as the definitive study on the topic.

Communication and Qualitative Research is the first textbook to examine the impact of Internet technology on qualitative research methods. Drawing on many pioneering studies using computer-mediated communication (CMC), the authors show how online researchers can employ Internet-based qualitative methods to collect rich, descriptive, contextually-situated data. They discuss the methodological, practical and theoretical considerations associated with such methods as in-depth online interviewing, virtual focus groups, and participant observation in virtual communities. This is a comprehensive and practical guide that: Reviews online research practice and basic Internet technology Looks in detail at the skills required by the online researcher Examines the ethical, confidentiality, security, and legal issues involved in online research Considers the theoretical challenges surrounding data collected in a "virtual venue" Addresses the social and cultural impact of researching online through a discussion of power, gender, and identity issues in the virtual world Internet Communication and Qualitative Research will be an indispensable guide for all students and researchers working in the digital age.

This paper is intended as a starting point for discussion on the possible future of scientific communication in chemistry, the value of new models of scientific communication enabled by web based technologies, and the necessary future steps to achieve the benefits of those new models. It is informed by a NSF sponsored workshop that was held on October 23-24, 2008 in Washington D.C. It provides an overview on the chemical communication system in chemistry and describes efforts to enhance scientific communication by introducing new web-based models of scientific communication. It observes that such innovations are still embryonic and have not yet found broad adoption and acceptance by the chemical community. The paper proceeds to analyze the reasons for this by identifying specific characteristics of the chemistry domain that relate to its research practices and socio-economic organization. It hypothesizes how these may influence communication practices, and produce resistance to changes of the current system similar to those that have been successfully deployed in other sciences and which have been proposed by pioneers within chemistry.
