Providing science-based information, tools, and skills to promote resilient communities and clean and healthy streams, rivers and watersheds of the Chesapeake Bay.
The Fundamentals of Science Communication and Translation
This training is by invitation only.
Resource Managers and Scientists realize they must go beyond publishing in peer-reviewed journals if they want their research to inform decisions about coastal management and build scientific understanding about relevant issues in both students and the general public. This training will provide instruction on communicating with the public, policy makers and educators and key Chesapeake Bay conservation and restoration issues.
The 2-day training will focus on teaching the skills needed to communicate with target audiences and cover the following topics.
For each training a theme will be identified through which the communication skills will be taught. The training is a collaboration between the Maryland Coastal Training Program and NOAA Environmental Training Center.
