Communicating science from the beltway to the heartland

HOW TO SHARE YOUR SCIENCE WITH DIVERSE AUDIENCES

Date: Wednesday, 23 May
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Location: Cambridge Community Center 1100

Registration for this event is now closed. 

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 Department of Geology at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD.

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.
