AAAS Communicating Science Workshop

  • AAAS Headquarters 1200 New York Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20005 United States

The AAAS Communicating Science Workshop is specifically designed to address the needs of scientists and engineers to communicate scientific or technical information in a variety of public and professional interactions, such as media interviews, writing grant proposals, discussing ideas with students, testifying before Congress, or participating in public forums. Workshop goals include building scientists’ communication skill and confidence in engaging with public audiences and providing best practices for use of different communication methods and mechanisms. The program uses empirical evidence from research in science communication and public engagement with science, and maintains an evaluation program that confirms workshops are meeting defined goals. Through discussion, self-reflection, small group work, and practice sessions, the workshop will focus on the importance of effective communication that clearly conveys scientific concepts. We encourage workshop participants to think about how content applies to their own work and communication opportunities.
