Creating Connections: An Introduction to the Alda Method

Thursday, September 30 | 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Virtual Event

#SciComm Week kicks off the return of our regular seminar series where we hear valuable perspectives on crafting and disseminating stories about science.

The Alda Center’s Creating Connections program is a two-hour live, online workshop designed to help scientists and researchers learn to engage and inspire diverse audiences through effective communication, with a particular focus on virtual interactions. Participants will learn how to balance being prepared with responding in the moment to address questions. The program emphasizes universal communication strategies, including avoiding jargon and technical skills for creating engagement online, such as camera angles and sound levels.
