Contact: Robin Dublin,

You’ve toiled over a video, PowerPoint or article for a general audience, but what did they take home? In this workshop, we will cover specific ways to improve your outreach/broader impact efforts to ensure that audiences take home your key message.

We will begin with four presentations followed by facilitated, active breakout sessions. After you register, you will receive information on how to prepare and what to bring so that you make the most out of this workshop.

The Communicating Ocean Science Workshop is in its eighth year and is sponsored by the North Pacific Research Board (NPRB), Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence Alaska (COSEE Alaska), Alaska Sea Grant, Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS), and the Alaska Chapter of the Northwest Aquatic and Marine Educators Association (NAME).

This workshop is open to the public and free, but registration is required. Sign up using the link below by close of business on January 16, 2014.
