Science Communication Workshop at Stony Brook University (Pilot I)

March 31 and April 1, 2017 — 9:00am to 5:00pm EST

THIS EVENT IS FULLY BOOKED WITH A WAIT LIST. NO FURTHER APPLICATIONS ARE BEING ACCEPTED.

The Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science invites STEM scientists* to participate in a free, two-day science communication workshop at Stony Brook University on March 31 and April 1, 2017.

What To Expect

Alda Center workshops give participants the tools to communicate more effectively with people outside their field, including the general public, policymakers, the media, students, potential employers or funders, and prospective collaborators in other disciplines. Our dynamic, interactive workshops guide participants to connect with their audience, speaking clearly and conversationally about their work and why it matters. We are especially interested in supporting early- and mid-career researchers. 

The Alda Center has trained over 8,000 scientists across the globe and we are excited to host this workshop, which is piloting a new curriculum. In return for participation and feedback, participants will get the chance to meet Alan Alda for a photo and each will receive an autographed copy of his book. We hope to support your research through better communication and get your feedback on our new curriculum. 

Space Is Limited: Sign Up By March 10, 2017

Space is limited to 16 participants, so please sign up early to ensure your participation. Applications are due Friday, March 10, 2017.

*Training is open to all SBU, Brookhaven National Laboratory and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory researchers. We ask that participants commit to attending the two full days of training at Stony Brook University. Coffee, light snacks, and lunch are provided both days.
