AAAS Communicating Science workshops, developed by the Center for Public Engagement with Science and Technology, are specifically designed to address the needs of scientists and engineers to communicate scientific or technical information in a variety of public and professional interactions. If your institution or organization is interested in hosting a workshop, please contact us at CommunicatingScience@aaas.org for information on content, costs, and logistics.
Through discussion, self-reflection, small group work, and practice sessions, workshops focus on the importance of effective communication that clearly conveys scientific concepts. We encourage workshop participants to think about how content applies to their own work and future communication opportunities.
Workshop module options include Science Communication and Public Engagement Fundamentals, Engaging the Public with Social Media, Engaging the Media and Engaging Policymakers. Learn more about our workshops on the About Communicating Science Workshops page.
