Alda Science Communication Experience
Science is complex. It shouldn't be exclusive.
The Alda Science Communication Experience is the Center's signature professional development program. Through a series of options, scientists will explore strategies to engage their audiences in ways that build trust and inspire.
Because all people understand the world through their individual experiences, this program will help researchers invite their audiences into their work. Through active listening and close attention to non-verbal communication, participants will learn to build connections between their research and other people's backgrounds and experiences.
These communication strategies work with audiences of all ages, education levels, and areas of expertise.
Organizing a Workshop
Alda-certified instructors work with scientific organizations, including universities, government agencies, and private companies, to offer the Alda Science Communication Experience. A variety of sessions, of different lengths and with different goals, are available.
The following programs are designed for small groups to learn, practice and receive feedback in an engaging and immersive environment. In-person programming is delivered at the host organization's campus or offices.
The Center also offers programming that is appropriate for conferences, professional meetings, and other large groups of scientists and researchers.
