Integrating Art & Science
Academic research outcomes are traditionally disseminated via peer reviewed publications, conference presentations and in the classroom. However, it is challenging to effectively communicate research results in ways that are accessible to both decision-makers and the wider public(s). Since museums have a long history of educating and engaging the public, this research project explored how curatorial and social media marketing strategies can be used by academics. Our main research goal was to identify best practices for disseminating curated research outcomes to help close the gap between academia and the public sphere.
