science communication "crash course"
If you don’t have the time to commit to a full Fellowship, but still want to improve your science communication skills: participate in one of “Crash Course” workshops. These workshops are about 2-3 hours and are offered in different parts of the state at different times throughout the year.
If you have questions or would like to get notified when and where the next “Crash Course” is offered, please contact Rhea.
CUSTOM SCIENCE COMMUNICATION WORKSHOPS
Custom science communication workshops are fun, interactive professional development experiences that improve the abilities of content experts to communicate both within their teams and with external audiences. These workshops offer opportunities to learn and practice fundamental communication skills, including using analogies and understandable language, practicing questioning strategies, and crafting messages that convey the importance and relevance of a topic. Workshops can also include development of hands-on activities to help communicate content to non-experts in approachable, engaging ways.
Custom workshops range in length and can be tailored to meet the goals and needs of your group. If desired, training can include individualized follow-up consultation with participants.
To discuss options for custom workshops, contact Rhea.
