Times are changing. From climate change to vaccination, we have entered an age where politicians and others do not anymore follow the best available scientific evidence. To ensure that science remains relevant, scientists do not only generate and disseminate scientific evidence but increasingly learn to present and debate that evidence with different groups of people. But debating skills do not only matter in debates. They are important to convince employers that we are the right person for a job, to convince individuals to engage in an exercise programme to improve their health, to win in a resource debate, or to sell a product or a service. For all these reasons, Professors Wackerhage and Königstorfer have developed a module that aims to train the students of the MSc in Sport and Exercise Science in debating. The module is termed “Current Social and Political Topics of Sports in Global Societies”.
