Read Story About SciComm Exchange by Amy Dunkle, RI EPSCoR.
Many scientists are intimidated by social networking tools, but Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn have become important tools to help faculty and researchers communicate with students, colleagues, funders, and public audiences. Do you have the skills to share science with broader audiences in the Digital Age?
URI’s Metcalf Institute, in partnership with Rhode Island College’s Center for Research and Creative Activity, held a SciComm Exchange featuring Metcalf’s executive director, Sunshine Menezes, who will provided tips for making the most of these valuable tools on Wednesday, February 24, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. The SciComm Exchange was free to registered participants and included lunch.
The SciComm Exchange, funded by Rhode Island NSF EPSCoR, is open to natural and social science faculty, program directors and professional staff engaged in research or supporting research, graduate students, and postdocs from all Rhode Island colleges and universities.
