Communicating Science Effectively

October 4-5*, 2016 | 9:00 am-5 pm

Coastal Institute, URI Bay Campus, Narragansett, RI

3-14 AICP credits offered

Even excellent science only has an impact when it is effectively communicated. This course provides participants with a toolbox for effectively communicating their work. Participants will learn:

  • the fundamentals of science communication
  • how to create conceptual diagrams
  • the tricks and tips of giving a presentation
  • the principles of layout and design

Hands-on sessions will allow participants to create their own science communication products and gain experience using some of the software used in science communication, including PowerPoint, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, and the Integration and Application Network's (IAN) symbol library. Agenda

This course is taught by instructors from the Integration & Application Network of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.

Testimonials: "The instructor:student ratio was fantastic - this was the first course where I felt like I actually learned the basics about the software to make my ideas a reality... it really was one of the best courses I have ever taken" | "The only bad thing about this course is now I am considered a guru among my lab and collaborators!" | "This course is an excellent introduction to improving our science education skills. The nearly equal emphasis between lecture and practice is very helpful"
