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).
ECS/101: Not Just Another Powerpoint: Best practices to bring your presentation to life
Speakers: Dr. Andrew Gunther, Executive Director of the Center for Ecosystem Management & Restoration; Marcia DeLonge, Agroecologist, Union of Concerned Scientists.
We’ve all sat through our fair share of dull presentations where the slides are filled top to bottom with text, include complicated graphs with text too small to read, and the presenter simply reads everything off the screen, never once making eye contact with the audience. There is another way. Scientific presentations can be compelling and engaging while still being scientific and accurate. Join us as we present ideas about how to make engaging presentations to both scientific and public audiences, and offer tips on how you can spruce up your own presentation before the next conference or meeting.
Stay tuned for our Fall 2015 Workshops.
