Get Your Science Moving: Building Blocks to Mobilize Science Engagement

Brought to you by the Lake Superior Reserve Coastal Training Program and Ohio Coastal Training Program, this virtual series is tailored for professionals, practitioners and leaders working on Great Lakes coastal issues.

Series Overview

You have the project - the data - the science to back it up. Now what? This series will cover six components necessary to get your science moving out in the real world so that it can reach the right eyes and ears to make a difference! This series will start with basics such as communication strategies and survey design, and move into more specifics, including how best to depict complex data and how to articulate the value of science-driven actions. Whether you are a researcher, collaborator, grant reviewer, or science advocate, this series will help you build science engagement skills to mobilize your data in the right direction.

Each of these offerings is a standalone course, and we encourage you to sign up for as many as you like. Sign up for the entire series of 6 workshops and receive a $15 discount. Registration fees for each course are $15 to $20, depending on course length.
