CBS SciComm Crash Course

CBS SciComm Crash Course - broaden your impact and tell science stories that resonate

The CBS Impact Exchange invites College of Biological Sciences and BioTechnology Institute graduate students and postdocs to participate in a new non-credit crash course in science communication. Practice the fundamentals of effective science communication and learn how to connect with diverse audiences. Participants will receive guidance and ultimately submit a piece for publication. Registration is first-come-first-serve and is limited to 20 participants. After that, participants will be placed on a waitlist. 


This crash course has been postponed to Fall 2020.


 

Participants will:

  • Learn about distinct styles of science communication and practice multiple communication modes.
  • Practice engaging diverse audiences and ditch the single elevator pitch when asked, “What do you do?”
  • Develop a critical lens to evaluate science communication and prepare a piece for online publication.
