Event Description

Science today is communicated (and miscommunicated) in a variety of digital forms, including social media, blogs and online videos, and many students leave university unable to communicate effectively and appropriately in these forms. This two-hour workshop introduces alternatives to the traditional lab reports or papers often used as the only tools to teach communication skills in science courses. Participants will engage with and explore diverse communication assignments as a means to teach how to communicate science to a variety of audiences.
