As announced in yesterday’s “Conversation on Science Communication”, the College of the Environment will be hosting a 2-day science communication training event for college faculty. Held on October 16-18, this intensive retreat will provide the opportunity to meet and work with 3-4 leading science and environmental journalists from around the country, and with nationally-recognized communication trainer Nancy Baron. Eighteen to twenty-two faculty will attend this training, a compressed version of the Leopold Leadership Program that will provide critical insights into the power of making your science accessible to wider audiences, the culture of traditional and social media, and message development and delivery in a variety of formats. Are you interested, or know of a faculty member in the College who might be? Nominate him/her at this link (you must have a NetID to nominate). Deadline for nomination is June 14!
