Looking forward to the @AAASmeetings plenary on problems in science communication, with @hholdenthorp @JaneLubchenco @AstroKatie @DrJoSimps & Kathleen Hall Jamieson…
There's been a shift in science in past 25 years toward more engagement & communication & solutions -- @JaneLubchenco
But when she & other scientists talked to Newt Gingrich about climate change, he wanted to know which policies he could champion that were different from That Al Gore Thing.

Fantastic #AAASmtg workshop from @scicomm_jc on values-based communication to reach audiences who are undecided on science issues! #scicommjc #scicomm #outreach Some key takeaways 👇
Values are concepts or beliefs that guide actions and decisions. People prioritize different values. Values-based communication intentionally matches the values in a message to the values held by an audience.
To learn your audience's values, listen! Find out what questions they ask, what motivates them. "A good science communicator listens more than they talk."

As a podcast lover, I enjoyed learning about the power of podcasts for science communication and career this morning! #AAASmtg #scicomm #podcast
Five planning principles for creating a podcast (or other story-based project):
1. Focus on audience - Who? What questions do they have? What barriers exist to prevent them from listening to the end of your story?
2. Flow - within an episode, the order of episodes overall
3. Key takeaways - 1 or 2 for your audience to walk away from an episode or season with
4. Structure - The journey: Where is the beginning, middle, and end? How and where do you build emotion?
5. Format - conversational? humorous? Who to interview and how?

Didn't get to tweet about this yesterday, but seeing Susan Goldin-Meadow in person after reading her work all these years was mind blowing! #AAASmtg Image
"Those that are blind from birth still gesture during speech." There are so many things that make us just uniquely human and it is amazing.
"Gestures reflect what we know and can even change what we know." #AAASmtg

How People Learn: A New Look #AAASmtg Hosted by: Nora Newcombe, Zewelanji Serpell, Cora Marrett, Annemarie Palincsar Image
"Different cultures place different value on learning by copying/creating, doing/observing, talking/listening, explaining/acting" which can all lead to differences in approaches during cognitive tasks. #AAASmtg
"The key to understanding learning is to have an appreciation for variability and to meaningfully consider variability in its many forms." - Zewelanji Serpell
