Baptism by fire: Oh I mean a systematic approach to talking good

October 22, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

  • This event has passed.

Science is so much more than lab tests, experiments and analysis – it’s about our ability to resonate with peers, media, decision makers, industry, and the public. Perhaps more than ever, communicating our science effectively and succinctly can be the difference between making an impact vs. missing opportunities to make the world a better place. This workshop will focus on science communication – drawing from lessons learned and hands-on training opportunities. Case studies, data on communication, and the “message box” will be discussed, all in a highly participatory and interactive way. All fields are welcome — from novices to experts — and be prepared to be an active participant!

Dr. Ben Houlton is the Director of the John Muir Institute of the Environment at the University of California. This  two-hour workshop for graduate students and post docs will focus on science communication and being an effective scientist in the 21st century.
