2020 AAAS Annual Meeting: SciComm Training Discussion: Foundational Skills for Science Communication

Sheraton Grand Seattle, 1400 6th Ave., Seattle, WA
AAAS

Science communication training programs have been developed and are offered by a wide variety of providers, ranging from graduate student associations to scientific societies to science communication-focused organizations. As these programs have proliferated, so have efforts to strengthen connections and collaborations among programs and between researchers and practitioners. Two recent efforts of note are the SciComm Training Network and a white paper presenting a preliminary framework outlining foundational science communication skills.

During this meeting, part of the 2020 AAAS Annual Meeting in Seattle, WA, participants will continue discussions stemming from the SciComm Training Network and the white paper, focusing on how to build collaboration between science communication researchers, trainers, and practitioners.
