Thanks for a great day in a room where we could overlook the building where I once did the lab work for my Master’s thesis. Below you will find the lecture slides in pdf format as well as a motley but useful collection of links.

Books on scientific peer-to-peer communication
I currently put a lot of effort in Crastina—a networking platform for the exchange of knowledge, skills, experience, and opinion regarding scientific communication and science dissemination. The primary target group is early career scientists, but here you can find stuff which is useful for everybody with an interest in communication. (The name comes from Scientia Crastina, Latin for ‘The Science of Tomorrow’)
There are several ways to engage in the Crastina network activities – please get in touch if you’re interested.
