ICAR Workshop – Communicating your science to peers and beyond
June 20 @ 5:45 pm - 6:45 pm UTC-6

From the conference website:
Communicating your science to peers and beyond:
Writing papers and grant proposals has always been an important part of an academic scientist’s workload, but now more than ever it is crucial for scientists to acquire additional communication skills in order to disseminate the results of their work more broadly. We’ll hear from scientists at various stages of their careers and on various career paths about their approaches to science communication, whether about their own or the work of others. We’ll discuss WHY communication skills are important, how to develop them, how to make the most of social media, as well as the importance of infographics in science communication and tools to help you to create them. We’ll also hear from experts about the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches and platforms (from blogs to YouTube), how organizations and platforms such as GARNet, Global Plant Council, ASPB, and Plantae.org can support your science communication efforts, and how the new journal Plant Direct will promote an open science ethos.
