PSRN Meetups and Activities at Plant Biology 2018
Location: Palais des congrès de Montréal
Saturday, July 14
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM | Plant Science Training in 2035: Implementing science communication training | Room 518
In this workshop, the Plant Science Research Network (PSRN) will share their recommendations for graduate training over the next 20 years and engage attendees in an interactive science communication exercise.
The workshop will be divided into two parts: Part 1 focus on the PSRN training recommendations and facilitate discussions about how to implement the recommendations. Part 2 will focus on one of the recommendations (practical training for science communication) and work with attendees to develop their research elevator pitch to more effectively engage with diverse audiences at conferences and through social media.
