Community engagement is always better when the community can see themselves in those engaging with them. Though knowing where to find expertise in your community can sometimes be challenging. In this online workshop, we explored the NISE Network’s “Working with STEM Experts” Guide - a practical resource for how to find, prepare, and work with the experts in your community. We discussed strategies for finding experts in different subjects, including Indigenous knowledge. We also talked about strategies for finding experts from colleges and universities, student groups, professional societies, diversity-serving professional societies, local industry professionals, affinity and enthusiast groups, local, state, and federal agencies. We focused on best practices for integrating experts into any programming topic in an informal learning setting, as well as helpful tools for creating successful, fun, effective experiences that utilize the valuable expertise in your community and provide access to these experts for your audiences.
