Communicating Your Science to the Public

At the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus – and across all CCTSI-affiliated institutions – we have some of the world’s top scientists and innovators who are engaged in groundbreaking and important work.

As an academic researcher, how do you take the details of your complex project and distill it in an understandable way for the public? How can you learn to tell a compelling story about what you do and why it is important?

The CCTSI is proud to launch a new workshop series called Communicating Your Science to the Public. We believe that one of the best ways to increase trust in science is to empower researchers with the skills to communicate their work. This three-part series provides an overview of why and how to engage the public -- everyone from television reporters to your neighbor -- and even with the world on social media. Each workshop is brief, 1.5 hours, and includes hands-on training and practice. The virtual workshops will be offered quarterly using Zoom.

Interested participants must complete a registration form and commit to attending all three workshops. Once the registration form is submitted, the program will forward participants the Zoom links to the workshops they have selected within 5 business days.
