NCAS-M will host American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Communicating Science Workshops on January 14th and 21st from 1:00 – 4:00pm ET.
AAAS Communicating Science workshops provide participants with training and support to effectively engage the public. AAAS workshops give scientists and engineers opportunities to reflect on their public engagement interests and experience and think critically about what they want to accomplish and how to achieve it. The program addresses the needs of scientists who are motivated to engage but lack the resources to develop their skills and create plans for action.
Workshops combine instruction, discussion, self-reflection, small- and large-group work and structured exercises emphasizing mutual listening, learning, and dialogue. Participants learn about the latest science communication research and public engagement best practices and facilitators guide them through applying the AAAS Public Engagement Framework in planning their own public engagement experiences.
