VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR NEW ONLINE SCIENCE COMMUNICATION TRAINING COURSE
The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is seeking participants to take part in a pilot version of “The Art of Science Communication,” an online course being developed by the ASBMB Public Outreach Committee as part of its science communication training program.
The course will be about eight weeks long, starting in September. During that time, we will cover the important components of what makes for a successful presentation, such as messaging, generating interest and engaging your audience. Training will be provided via a combination of lectures, live mentoring sessions and virtual discussions. The course will culminate with each participant giving his or her own live presentation, utilizing the skills learned in the course.
We expect participants will spend two to three hours on the course each week. As this is a pilot version, we want, and expect, participants to provide extensive feedback, both good and bad, on the content, format and merits of the course. Those insights will greatly assist the development of both this course and our science communication training program, helping us to grow the community of scientific communicators.
