Science Communication: Why and How, IOH 4506

When academic scientists think about communication, they often imagine writing grants or publications directed at other researchers in the field. While we may not think as much about communicating research results and the process of science to the public, these practices are integral to ensuring public support for and understanding of the scientific enterprise. In this session, learn why it is critical that academic scientists communicate with the public and explore best practices for science communication.
