Oct. 23, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

A two-hour live, online workshop designed to help scientists learn to engage and inspire diverse audiences through effective communication. Presented by the Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Stony Brook University's Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science.

Participants will learn how to balance being prepared with responding in the moment to address questions. The program emphasizes universal communication strategies such as avoiding jargon, as well as technical skills for creating engagement online. The Alda Method is a unique approach to science communication training that combines improvisational theater-based techniques with message-design strategies, including analogies and narrative. The immersive method emphasizes two-way communication to build trust and invite others to share in the wonder and joy of science. It incorporates research and best practices from science communication, journalism, ethics and other relevant fields.

Audience: faculty, research scientists, postdocs, graduate students.

Space is limited to the first 100 participants to register.
