ESIP Winter Meeting: January 9 - 11, 2018

Welcome to the 2018 Winter Meeting for the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)! The 2018 theme is Realizing the Socioeconomic Value of Data. The theme is based on one of the goals in the 2015 - 2020 ESIP Strategic Plan, which provides a framework for ESIP’s activities over the next three years. 

  • There will be lots going on in Slack during the meeting, find your invite HERE. #winter_mtg

Tear down that wall! Crossing the communication boundary between your field and everyone else

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

You know you can write a great journal paper, and your colleagues assure you that your talks at professional meetings don’t (always) feel like “death by Powerpoint.” However, when you try to communicate the value of your contributions to folks outside your field, you find a lot of them don’t quite get it. If you’re interested in increasing the impact of your science by sharing it with a larger audience, here’s a place to start.

This session will explore some ways to share your science more broadly. We’ll show examples of various tools and trainings available (e.g., AGU’s Kudos(1), AAAS’s Communicating Science Resources(2), and others), look at some engaging examples (e.g., the film Chasing Coral(3), as well as others), and share personal journeys to improved science communication. All levels of experience are welcome; our goal is to help everyone improve.

Tentative agenda:
  • Five main science communication goals (LuAnn Dahlman lead)
  • Using plain language to broaden your reach (Denise Hills lead)
  • Memorable moments: Bridgin the connection between fine arts, liberal arts, and science arts (Christine White lead)

If you'd like your abstract to be used as an example for how to convert a scientific abstract into a plain language summary, please bring it with you to the session, or email it to one of the presentators ahead.
