The Society of Technical Communication (STC) invited IAN to conduct a workshop at their 55th Annual Technical Communication Summit in Philadelphia, PA from June 1-4. Thirty-five conference attendees joined IAN science communicators Joanna Woerner and Caroline Wicks for a workshop called "Conceptual Diagrams: Tools for effective science communication." Professionals from the environmental science, medical, pharmaceutical, computer, financial, and engineering fields learned how to synthesize and integrate data through conceptual diagrams. This workshop, based on concepts presented in the "Effective Science Communication Course," consisted of a brief lecture, group discussion, and conceptionary—an interactive drawing exercise where participants practice using symbols to convey complex information.
