Custom Science Communication Workshops
Custom science communication workshops are fun, interactive professional development experiences that improve the abilities of content experts to communicate both within their teams and with external audiences. These workshops offer opportunities to learn and practice fundamental communication skills, including using analogies and understandable language, practicing questioning strategies, and crafting messages that convey the importance and relevance of a topic. Workshops can also include development of hands-on activities to help communicate content to non-experts in approachable, engaging ways.
Custom workshops range in length from two hours to two days, and can be tailored to meet the goals and needs of your group. If desired, training can include individualized follow-up consultation with participants.
Pricing begins at $1,500 for a workshop with up to 20 participants. Discounts are available for not-for-profit and academic groups. Custom workshops can be paired with program and event opportunities to put communication skills into practice.
