The Science Network Workshop Series
Please join the Science Network for one of the workshops listed below. These sessions are part of a series offered to Science Network members to provide training opportunities to strengthen your communication and advocacy skills. There are three different levels of workshops that might appeal to you: introductory (101), advanced (202), and early career scientist (ECS).
101: Communicating in Your Own Words: How to Talk to the Media and the Public about Science
Wednesday, October 29, 3PM ET
Presenters: Aaron Huertas, Science Communications Officer, UCS; Dana Nuccitelli, environmental scientist and climate blogger at Skeptical Science
What’s the difference between a letter-to-the-editor and an op-ed? What is the role of an editorial board? What are three things you should absolutely know before talking with a reporter? Join us for a webinar to learn the answers to these questions, plus more tips and advice from the experts on how to communicate your science to both the public and the media. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of when to use different types of written communication to make the biggest impact, and science communication stories from scientists who have mastered the media interview
ECS/202: Social Media for Scientists: Science Communication for the Web
Wednesday, November 5, 3PM ET
Presenters: Katy Love, Online & New Media Manager, UCS; Ray Dearborn, Campaign Lab Director, Upwell; Liz Neeley, Assistant Director of Science Outreach, COMPASS; Matthew Francis, Science Writer and Director of CosmoAcademy
What’s the point of using social media? Actually, for scientists, engineers, economists, and public health and other experts, there are many benefits to be gained from using social media, including sharing your research with new audiences, building relationships with others who share your interests, and creating a network of others you can reach out to with questions or to bounce ideas off of. Join us to hear more from scientists who have found social media to be a benefit, not a burden, for their work. Our experts will share stories about how engaging online has helped them professionally, and offer tips to help get you started.
