COMPASS Virtual Science Communication Workshop
The University of Kentucky’s Center for Appalachian Research in Environmental Sciences (UK-CARES) is excited to offer our annual COMPASS science communication workshop from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on July 8 or July 9, 2020. This free, highly interactive, virtual workshop is designed for all who need to communicate science: students, trainees, staff, and faculty. The workshop will help you share what you do, what you know—and most importantly, why it matters—in clear, lively terms. Grounded in the latest research on communication, this training will explore what makes people sit up and pay attention and how to build a meaningful connection with your audience.
The four hour-long, interactive virtual workshop will introduce tools and strategies to help you distill your knowledge and communicate with diverse audiences. You will learn to use the Message Box, COMPASS’ fundamental tool for breaking down complex topics into digestible messages.
This workshop will involve hands-on practice, feedback, interactive exercises, and lots of breaks, so please join using a webcam and be prepared to actively participate. See the attached flier about the workshop.
Please note that the content for both workshop sessions is the same, so you only need to register for one and just choose your preferred date.
