The Role of Communications Research in Science Communication: Theory, Practice and Funding Opportunities
|Date||11/05/15 12:00pm to 2:00pm|
|Location||244 Ag Engineering|
Representatives from the College of Communication will discuss the resources and expertise the college can provide to support more effective science communications efforts. Dr. Colleen Connolly-Ahern will moderate an informal discussion with faculty members Fuyuan Shen, Denise Bortree, George Anghelcev and Lee Ahern. The panel will discuss how communications theory and methodology can inform and improve science communication efforts, with both theoretical and practical implications, as well as internal and external funding opportunities to support science communications projects. The goal is to share strategies for designing research-driven communication campaigns and describe the college’s capabilities as a partner in science grant proposals. Feel free to bring your lunch to this seminar.
