The REU Science Communication Workshop is designed to enhance the science communication skills of undergraduate students participating in research programs like NSF's Research Experience for Undergraduates. This Guide provides program directors with step-by-step planning and implementation advice, hand-outs, media and print materials, evaluation tools, and sample workshop leader speaking scripts.
This workshop on scientific journalism and interviewing skills was prepared and given by a team of scientists, educators and editorial staff at the Materials Research Society. The workshop is designed as a full-day, with a post-workshop assignment and individual follow-up by the instructional staff. The instructional design is modifiable so that this can be taught as two independent half-day workshops. Ideal participant size is 15.
This Web Seminar, developed in collaboration with the National Science Digital Library, took place on Wednesday, November 11, 2009 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. Dr. Lisa Regalla, Science Editor for DragonflyTV provided participants with a greater understanding of nanoscale science by giving a brief history of how our understanding of nanotechnology has rapidly grown over time. Dr. Regalla cited several examples of nano-level phenomena found in nature that scientists have studied.
Online Brown Bag: Exhibit Small Talk - Tips for Hosting the Nano Mini-Exhibition: Staff Training (Recorded)
In this first in a series of brown bags about the Nano mini-exhibition, we take a look at different approaches to training staff and volunteers to work with the Nano mini-exhibition. We will review the NISE Network resources available to assist you as you begin and will also hear from partners about their experience preparing staff for ongoing work with the exhibit.
The NACK Network offers a live webinar, hosted by MATEC NetWorks, every month to engage and educate those of you that are interested in learning more about nanotechnology related topics.
workforce development and careers
K-12 education outreach tools for community college programs
societal and ethical implications
safety and much more
Recordings, slides, and handouts are all archived and available.
The purpose of the webinar was to share resources available for the inclusion of nanoscale science and engineering into the K-12 curriculum and how this inclusion can meet state science standards.
Presenter: Joyce Palmer Georgia Tech NNIN Recorded January 31, 2014
This is a recording of a NISE Network online brown-bag conversation held in 2012 that focuses specifically on NISE Net's Universal Design Guide for Public Programs, and provides examples of universal design in a few NISE Net programs
Hosted in July 2013 by the Museum of Science, Boston, the Universal Design of Educational Programs workshop was intended for museum educators who develop and conduct educational programs or train those who do. Invited workshop participants had a hands-on opportunity to apply NISE Net's universal design guidelines to a current NISE Net program and collect feedback on their progam from people with disabilities using the Team-Based Inquiry approach.
Included here are the powerpoint slides, handouts, and other resources from the workshop.
In June 2013, NISE Net partners representing twenty informal education centers around the country explored how to better engage Hispanic/Latino audiences with nanoscale science, technology, and engineering. Workshop resources include the agenda, information on sheltered instruction, presentation slides, TBI resources, and workshop handouts.
A seminar designed for early-career scientists about the successful design and use of scientific posters.
