Communicating Science Workshop

The Offices of the Vice President for Research & Economic Development and Proposal Services & Faculty Support invite you to join your colleagues for an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Communicating Science workshop specifically designed to help you plan and participate in a wide variety of public engagement activities. The half-day workshop focuses on the importance of effective, two-way communication and is designed to enable you to engage in meaningful, reciprocal dialogue with diverse audiences. The program was launched at the 2008 AAAS Annual Meeting in Boston and has since provided more than 220 workshops for over 7,000 attendees at universities, science society meetings, and government agency labs in the US and abroad. We are excited about bringing the Workshop to Auburn University for faculty in all disciplines.
