language of the event

One of the teachers' tasks is to acquaint the students with the basics of their discipline and its vocabulary. This task, however, may seem at odds with the popularization activities in teaching that often lead us to simplify. This raises the question: how can we popularise science in the classroom and teach specialist language simultaneously? In this session, we will explore together how to modify our vocabulary so that what we say is understandable, appealing, and at the same time, accurate and unbiased. The principles we uncover will then be practiced and reflected upon.
