News for Researchers

Posted February 28, 2019 by Ashley Washburn

Improving the science communication skills of University of Nebraska faculty is the goal of a March 7 workshop. Register now, as event seating is limited.

The Science Communication Workshop is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Lied Commons, 301 N. 12th St.

Led by University of Nebraska State Museum at Morrill Hall staff trained in informal science education, the workshop will leverage best practices from the Portal to the Public Network, or PoPNet, to help scientists more effectively communicate their science to the public. PoPNet is a national organization dedicated to connecting public audiences with science in their own communities. Attendees will participate in interactive activities to build their communication skills and will leave the workshop with strategies for developing future informal science education experiences and a certificate of participation.

The workshop is free and open to faculty from all NU campuses, and a complimentary lunch will be provided. Seating is available on a first-come, first-seated basis.

For additional information, contact Tisha Mullen, director of proposal development, 402-472-2894.
