The Department places the discoveries and new knowledge developed by the ULg's researchers within the understanding not only of secondary education teachers and students, but also of any person interested in science and academic research or looking for scholarly information made accessible in a quality manner. It publishes on its bilingual (French and English) Reflexions site news about the most recent work carried out by the ULg's researchers. On it this work is presented, explained and placed within the context of the current state of knowledge concerning the subject.
In carrying out this task, a jounalist who ensures the management and editorial running of the site as a Sub-Editor on a daily basis is aided by an external journalist, the site's Editor-in-Chief.
The news published is the result of joint work between the researchers and professional journalists who are experts in popularising scholarly research. These self-employed journalists work under contracts which are renewable each year. Each of these journalists is allocated a specific research field in such a way that all the ULg's research areas can be popularised by people accustomed with the techniques, methods and vocabulary used by the researchers.
The Reflexions team also works with the 'Information and Communication' Department of the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters in hosting work placement students who wish to be trained in scholarly research popularisation.
