How might that change how you interact with a non-expert about your science? Think about prior knowledge Assess prior knowledge by asking questions Surprise at variety of learning styles in the room; everyone is different, has different interests; try to connect with the interests of your audience or provide ways for them to explore what most interests them Be okay with hitting only the big points, or even just with having a positive interaction Watch for misunderstanding or lack of understanding; sometimes words that seem common for scientists have different meanings for non-experts 2) Looking ahead to the afternoon: Discuss how effective communication might help you achieve your goals outside the lab or classroom. Inform policy Connect with media Teach kids about how cool science is Practice using analogies Inform communities at risk of natural hazards05-15-2017Humpy's Great Alaskan Alehouse Anchorage08-07-2017MAX-1072.pdf1072
