Science Communication and Translation Course

Students at the courseEcoCheck partnered with NOAA's Chesapeake Bay Office and the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve's Coastal Training Program to facilitate a two-day workshop on effective science communication. Determining the key messages and development of the complete climate change story was the focus of the workshop. Participants learned effective science communication techniques, including layout and design principles, making conceptual diagrams, and recording effective videos. Participants attending the workshop were from academic institutions and state and federal agencies. IAN is running its next course from May 1-3 in Cambridge, MD.
