Bridging the divide between science and the public is more important than ever. As we practice social distancing and adapt to a new normal, communicating science might seem more daunting than before, but we are here to help!
We’ve put together a list of science communication resources that have helped us over the years, including social media best practices, strategies for giving compelling presentations, and how to best visualize your data. Here are a few of our favorite resources:
- TED Talks are always a great place to start. There are not only several talks on how to communicate science (one of our favorites is Melissa Marshall’s Talk Nerdy To Me), but it’s also the perfect place to learn by example.
- Communicating science through social media presents a tremendous opportunity to share news and information with audiences you wouldn’t typically interact with, but utilizing all the different platforms in the most effective manner can be overwhelming. Check out some tips for Twitter and Instagram!
- Information is Beautiful is a great resource to draw inspiration from for data, information, and facts displayed in easy to understand and beautiful graphs and diagrams.
