Summary

Workshop for Wisconsin’s Green Fire

Description

Holly Walter Kerby will lead this workshop for Wisconsin's Green Fire members who want to use science to help influence policy. The workshop is appropriate for members with subject expertise as well as communicators and educators. The workshop introduces story elements and principles and engages individuals in building a presentation. A story board template will be used to map out the presentation of scientific content in the form of a story. Participants work in revolving small groups to get feedback on and revise their presentations and receive feedback from the whole group on their final version.

Holly Walter Kerby is the founder and Executive Director of Fusion Science Theater, which uses the elements of story to create methods that communicate science to public audiences. She works as an instructor with the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science and has worked in industry and in science education.

The $25 registration fee covers lunch. You can indicate dietary restrictions on the second page of the on-line registration form. For more information on the workshop contact Dolly Ledin at daledin3@gmail.com.
