This workshop is for early career researchers, PIs, and those involved in education, outreach, and DEI who seek to develop an evidence-based strategy for stakeholder engagement and science communication. Building on his just-published book on Strategic Science Communication, John Besley (Hubbard Brook) will help participants identify audience-specific behavioral goals for communicating their LTER work and think through communication objectives that will help them achieve those goals through carefully selected tactics. Sarah Garlick (Hubbard Brook) and Corinn Rutkoski (Kellogg Biological Station) will share their experiences identifying goals and building out evidence-based science communication strategies in their respective projects. Participants will have an opportunity to design their own strategy, with guidance on differentiating goals from objectives and tactics, as well as aiming for specificity in their communication strategy.
