Communicating Science: Identifying What You Want and How to Get It
Date: October 12, 2022 Time: 2:00 pm (Central Time)
Communicating your science is like shopping in a supermarket. The choices are endless – writing, tweeting, blogging, posting pictures, videos, doing a jig on TikTok. Some items are beneficial. Some can be tasty and rewarding, other efforts can be a waste of time and calories. This webinar will be a forum on guidelines to figure out what you want from your communications and how to craft a communication style aligns with your tastes and creates a recipe to achieve those goals. This session is dynamic – less lecture, more Q&A – so come ready to interact.
