The Alda-Kavli Learning Center

Online Learning Experiences

All online programs are 90 minutes

Alda-Kavli online learning experiences are designed to introduce scientists and other researchers to some basic tools and strategies to empower clear and vivid science communication. We recommend that individuals begin with Know Your Audience, then move to Know Your Goal, and complete the series with Know Your Tactics. Making Your Case to Congress is a stand-alone program designed to help individuals strategize meetings with members and Congressional staffers.

About the Alda-Kavli Learning Center

Supported by The Kavli Foundation, the Alda-Kavli Learning Center provides a place for scientists, researchers, healthcare professionals, and others to continue to learn about and improve their communication style.

Through a series of free online learning experiences, individuals learn more about clear and vivid communication. Informed by the Alda Method, these programs serve as precursors or follow-up activities to the Alda Center's workshops.

A series of monthly webinars by leading science communication experts offers individuals a different perspective on communication, and provides other science communication experts with a forum to share their ideas and engage with each other.
