Grad Skills Seminar #6
THIS Friday in ETC 2.114 at 3 PM
Effective Outreach: Techniques and Considerations
Presenters: Ashley Hicks
Inspired by John Dewey and the Laboratory School, Louis Menand wrote that "knowledge is inseparably united with doing." Following this idea, many strive to bring science and technology into the classroom and home life in hopes of enriching human knowledge and increasing scientific literacy. This short seminar will discuss effective science outreach and science communication techniques, with an emphasis on Austin ASA's involvement with outreach activities. Focus will be placed on audience and environment of outreach, including special considerations that must be made when doing outreach in both small and large groups. Finally, outreach resources for organization and personal use (including recommended reading) will be presented.
Hope you can make it!
