Picture this: you’ve just made a significant contribution to solving a relevant societal issue, but the public, journalists, and policymakers are unaware of it. How do you communicate your findings and insights in a way that resonates and informs these key audiences? The one-day workshop “Communicating through the Noise: Science Communication for Early-Career Scholars” is a hands-on opportunity for early-career researchers to learn how to effectively communicate their research to diverse audiences. One of the key challenges in science communication is ensuring that complex scientific concepts are communicated appropriately for lay audiences. The workshop will cover both traditional media (i.e., journalists) and new media (e.g.,YouTube) with a focus on why science communication is important, when it is appropriate, and how to reach target audiences effectively. Participants will leave the workshop with practical skills and knowledge to share their research findings in a way that is engaging and accessible to a wider audience, making a meaningful impact outside of academia.
If you wish to participate in the workshop, please register until 31 March 2023.
The number of spots is limited.
