Jan. 4, 2018, 9:30am to 4:30pm

Office/Remote Location

Desert Research Institute

Description

You are invited to join the free DRI SciComm workshop on science communication. The focus of DRI SciComm is to use immersive experiences to your skills in public engagement, speaking, and translating your research to a wider audience.

We will offer skill-building and applied theory on the basics of science communication, presenting to a popular science audience, and exploring the various media one has to communicate (e.g., video, social media, and outreach).

We’ll cover three topics in the daylong workshop:

  1. What you don’t already know about science communication.
  2. Storytelling and the popular science audience.
  3. Media is plural: multimedia, social media, interviews with the media.

Lunch is provided.
