I'm getting my undergrads to make tiny RPG/storytelling games in the style of the @200WordRPG challenge, and to prep, we're looking at (and playing some) in class. A small thread for those interested in teaching games!
#teaching #gamedesign
@gshowitt's Mechanical Oryx. One of the more dice-heavy games in the challenge. A soft intro since we've played @john_harper's Lasers & Feelings. It'll show them the use of different dice, and how a few, choice prompts can create a weird world…
Andrew Millar's "Route Clearance" is next in line. How to use common game pieces like playing cards in roleplaying games. Serious, contemporary themes, and war & violence beyond action-hero-glorification.…

[Day4: Strengths & Limits of #SciComm forms, media, & spaces]
It's theory vs practice day!

There are loads of resources out there for #BestPractices. Today, let's discuss the strengths & limitations YOU've found in trying #STEM #storytelling, #comedy, #SciArt, #digital, & more!
I'll start w/ my favorite resources: @edbeltane & @OliverEscobar's "Public Dialogue & Delibration" & #WendyFaulkner's "Dialogue in #PublicEngagement" handbooks.

How do participant #communication styles impede/help your purpose, eg. #dialogue vs #debate?…
These have been crucial in my understanding of #experiencedesign when creating events or experiences for diverse #scicomm audiences & participants.

There's a purpose for panels and debates. But also a reason why they fail in "changing minds" or creating power-balanced convos.

[Day3: Creating & Sustaining Spaces of Practice]
Q: Have you created or been part of initiatives for #Science #STEM #STEAM #SciComm practice? Are you considering creating one yourself?

Today we'll discuss "safe spaces to fail" and scaffolded experiences to build up your skills!
Why do I care?
As a former academic & now in my work to spread adaptable skills in #scicomm through #comedy, it strikes me how little prep we get to teach or give strategic talks as we make the shift from undergrad to grad levels

How many bad habits do we accumulate b/c of this?
What are some bad communication habits in #Science #STEM you've seen, experienced, or are still working to overcome?

Here's where I used to struggle:
- preparing talks the night before
- going over time
- imagining the audience wasn't even there
- bad PPTs

‘Ability to give and absorb feedback is an art, and has to be done in a structured manner. You can easily lose the plot if the feedback isn’t appended with the observation, action & pointers for future’

J'ai envie de mettre ma casquette de communicante et jeter un oeil à la petite histoire du storytelling de la #PitieSalpetriere. #1ermai #Paris

Morale de l'histoire : quand on en fait trop, ça finit par se voir. ⤵️
On connaît la technique des effets d'annonces depuis quelques semaines. On vous vend du "2000 #BLACKBLOCS DE TOUTE L'EUROPE VONT DEBARQUER ET TOUT SACCAGER EN VILLE !! " sur des bases de renseignement et autres infos top-secrètes de la police. La France a peur !!
Pratique. Si la manif suivant se passe mal, on pourra dire "on vous avait prévenu, ce sont des sauvages". Si ça se passe bien, on vous dira : "merci les FDO qui nous protègent" et avec on sous-entend que l'hystérie sécuritaire du gouvernement est la bonne réponse à apporter.

Auf der Konferenz #writingforchange hat @Umweltredakteur eine flammende Keynote Rede gehalten. Long story short: Die Welt braucht mehr gute Klima-Journalist*innen.

Noch waten wir zu sehr im Sumpf. Wie Storytelling uns da rausholt und andere fun facts: im [thread] 👇
Die größten Probleme bei der Berichterstattung über den Klimawandel sind: Climate Change ist nicht sexy, nicht leicht verständlich, hat kaum Stars, oft keinen aktuellen Aufhänger. @Umweltreporter rät deshalb:
(1) werdet kreativ
(2) schafft Infrastruktur
(3) bildet Banden
(1) Be creative🔅
Warum immer von Wirtschaft oder Technik ausgehen? Alternative Frameworks für den Klimawandel sind Kunst & Kultur, Alltag, Gesundheit...

Ist der #Brexit gut fürs Klima? Wieviel kostet der Temperaturanstieg die Krankenkassen? Welche #Instagram Formate kommen an?

Stell Dir vor es ist Klimawandel, und keiner geht hin... Was für eine Intro zum Workshop "Writing for Change" an der LMU! Danke für die Einladung @haztravrcc

Follow this THREAD for insights into our discussion about environmental journalism then and now 🌿🌎👇#writingforchange
Following in the footsteps of Rachel Carson #writingforchange

How can we stop #climatechange? Can journalism help? What made past media campaigns successful? How many reports can readers take before becoming indifferent? What is the right mixture of emotional & rational appeal?
@mrneuzil traces back the history of environmental journalism all the way to the Bible: "The earth is also polluted by its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws..." (Isaiah 24:5)

1/ Happy Monday Twitter. ⚠️ #tweetstorm 🌪️ #alert ⚠️

My #LegalGeek #FOMO peaked when I missed @nwaisb talk on #AI #hype which is still ALL OVER MY TWITTER FEED. Plus now I have #ACCAM18 #FOMO so here's a bunch of 🤔re #AI, #MachineLearning, #EmergingTech #hype, and #marketing.
2/ As @ZachAbramowitz thinks there's no fun in agreeing: no, I don't think @nwaisb / @KiraSystems & others have benefited (on net) from the AI hype. I'd say hype hurts us all, bc it trades short term gainz to a few players for long-term pain shared by all.
3/ New entrants can feel the need to build #buzz for brand awareness + brand lift. I wouldn't exactly disagree this may help new offerings generate leads + fill their pipeline. Piggybacking on an existing trend with #hype is a shortcut to buzz, BUT with many pitfalls ⚠️

It was october, again, and the monsters were on the loose. The woman on the cover of the newspaper had a poisonous smile. Everybody was talking about her kidnapping. #Inktober #Inktober2018 #storytelling #noir
"She's a witch. You know that, right? A famous medium." Lillie said, her voice tranquil, while she was working through the papers in the office. #Inktober #Inktober2018 #storytelling #noir
"I asked roasted beef for lunch, boss", Lillie continued. "We could use a client like her. They say she's very rich". #Inktober #Inktober2018 #storytelling #noir
