I strongly recommend to all scientists to consider attending this
workshop on Communicating Science, which can be very helpful for your
career. A similar workshop was held this months during the UCAR's
members meeting and was very successful.
Best regards, Simone Tilmes
The UCAR-NCAR Communicating Science Program is collaborating with the
National Science Foundation to hold a media workshop, "Science:
Becoming the Messenger" on November 1-2, 2011, at Center Green.
This program is developed to enable staff at all levels and
classifications involved in science communication to develop improved
skills and capacity to interact with the media. The program involves
participants grouping into small teams who work through a series of
media activities, including the use of PowerPoint, video preparation
and messaging, and blogging.
The program development was funded by the NSF, who are sponsoring one
session per month at different locations around the country. They have
been kind enough to allow us to provide it as an opportunity for staff.
The session is conducted by three accomplished communicators and
trainers--former PBS executive Dan Agan, bestselling science author
Chris Mooney and Emmy award winning television producer Joe Schreiber.
It will also include participation from the UCAR Communications Unit and E&O.
*The session is broken into two distinct parts over two days:*
* Day 1: has a limit of 120 participants and goes through a series
of detailed training sessions on everything from communication
techniques and know-your-audience, to developing a message and
carrying it through blog and video environments;
* Day 2: is by invitation only and limited to ~15 participants who
will go through a full immersion training on behind the scenes
detail and communication subtleties.
If interested in attending Day 2, please complete the questions where
indicated on the registration form. If you are not interested, simply
type N/A in the boxes.
*Note: There are a limited number of seats available for Day 1.
These will be allocated primarily on a first-come basis, so register
early to ensure attendance. Also all participants must commit to the
full day as each session builds on the other.*
*You can register at the website below. **The registration deadline is
Monday, October 24, 2011.*
*We hope to see you there!
