Communicating science effectively to Da Burgh & beyond


Date: Friday, 19 October

Location: Carnegie Mellon University, Wean Hall room 5415


Learn how to communicate your science clearly and concisely in a way that will resonate with any audience at this hands-on American Geophysical Union (AGU) communications workshop hosted by the Public Communication for Researchers program at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.

At this interactive workshop, you will learn how to communicate science to people in your community, policy makers, and the media, in a relevant, engaging, and memorable way. You will learn how to identify the right group for you to reach out to, how to create an effective message about your research/work, and how to tailor your presentation for a specific audience. You will also learn active listening skills, have the chance to practice public speaking, and receive feedback from communication experts and your peers.

This workshop is designed for scientists who want to learn how to more effectively communicate their research/work, as opposed to policy professionals, outreach specialists, journalists, or other professional communicators.

Scientists from all disciplines and of all communications-experience levels are welcome. This workshop is free and lunch will be provided. Advance sign-up is required and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.

We are offering two identical half-day workshops. Please pick only one when registering.
