The introductory-level, three-hour Engaging the Public with Social Media workshop guides scientists and engineers through reflection on the state of the evolving social media landscape and their roles in it. Appropriate for both novices and those who are already using social media, participants evaluate their online presence and think critically about how they can use social media to accomplish their public engagement goals. This module combines instruction, guided discussion and individual and group activities and culminates with participants developing comprehensive social media public engagement plans.

AAAS-Hosted Virtual Workshops start at $125 per person and each workshop is open to the first 30 scientists and engineers who register and pay the registration fee. AAAS-Hosted Virtual Workshops are hosted in GoToTraining. Virtual workshops are interactive and participants have the option, but are not required, to turn on their microphones and cameras during discussions. (Note: The Google Chrome browser is required to participate in breakout group discussions.)

This AAAS-Hosted Virtual Workshop is for individuals seeking science communication and public engagement training. AAAS also offers Institution-Hosted Virtual and In-Person workshops. Learn more on our Host a Workshop page or see our flyer.
