Communicating Science: Tools for Scientists and Engineers
March 10, 9 a.m. to noon, McGilvrey Hall 240
Scientists who foster information-sharing and respect between science and the public are essential for communication of and engagement with science. The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is facilitating a 3-hour communication-skills training program specifically designed for researchers. The workshop will include content such as message development, handling interactions or questions from the media or other audiences, identifying communication opportunities, and honing public presentation skills. The workshop format allows for collaborative learning through small-group discussion, resource-sharing, and giving feedback on other participants’ presentations.
Dr. Paul DiCorleto, Vice President for Research and Sponsored Programs, will offer comments, and faculty will have the opportunity for networking after the workshop.
