Writing and Communication Workshop, with Bulletin of Atomic Scientists

Thursday 2/23/2017, 9am-6pm
Location: Frist Campus Center, Room 330 (McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning) for morning session

This workshop seeks to encourage participants to engage policymakers and the general public. It offers tips and insights into using social media, television, radio, and other media platforms to advance ideas. It is designed to encourage participants to develop and try out new communication skills, and connect their research findings to those outside their field of expertise.

Topics will focus on nuclear weapons and disarmament, the changing energy landscape, climate change, and emerging technologies (bio, neuro, AI…), which are the bulletin core issues (check their website at: http://thebulletin.org).

Book Club
