Our team at the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science offers many forms of training for scientists hoping to improve their communication skills and connect with family, friends and colleagues to tell clear and vivid stories about their work. We have trained nearly 10,000 scientists in The Alda Method™ since 2009, successfully using improvisational theater exercises and message design workshops to address the common pitfalls of science communication.
