Effective Scientific Communication in the Digital Era

  • Building 4, Room 370 77 Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge, MA, 02139 United States (map)

This is the opening panel at ComSciCon-SciWri15, featuring insights from communication experts Wade Roush (from MIT’s Knight Science Journalism program), Christie Aschwanden (FiveThirtyEight), and Joe Palca (NPR) on how scientists can best utilize the evolving digital landscape to disseminate their work and reach out to non-scientific audiences. After an initial perspective is provided by each of the panelists, audience members will have the opportunity to engage with the experts through an interactive question and answer session. 

ComSci-Con-SciWri15 is a pilot program from ComSciCon designed to give alumni of the ComSciCon graduate student conferences a chance to build on their experiences through additional writing practice and interactions with professional science writers.
