[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.

Y'all, I just need to brag about the students in my Barrier Islands class. While studying for their exam (which they're taking right now), they created a bunch of barrier-island-themed memes that combine #geology concepts, #coastal issues, & #humor. 1/
Almost all semester I've explained how most barrier islands worldwide are geologically "new," having only been made <10,000 years ago, but that the Georgia barrier islands are composite, made by two different shorelines during the Pleistocene & Holocene. #geology 2/
We also recently learned about how humans have interacted with barrier islands during those past <10,000 years, and how it changed from seasonal use to unsustainable over-development. #geology #coastal 3/

Acabo de rebasar la frontera de los 10.000 followers, que para los tuitstars no es nada, pero a mí se me hace raro.

Creo que le tengo que dar las gracias al señor Hopper (y a un montón de buena gente que, contra todo pronóstico, habita Twitter)

ASÍ QUE:
Si alguno de los recién llegados quiere leer más hilos míos de ficción, aquí tengo recopilados unos cuántos:

¡Castelloneo espontáneo! Puesto que está disponible online, me pongo a livetuitear el primer episodio de "Los perros duros no bailan", la nueva xenoficción (?) de Arturo Perreteverte.
"... en aquel tiem­po pesaba cincuenta kilos, medía setenta y cuatro centímetros de las patas a la cruz..."

Perros eruditos que conocen el concepto de kilogramos y de centímetros.
"Agilulfo —un podenco flaco, filósofo y culto que sabe de estas cosas— asegura que nací para el combate; que soy un guerrero antiguo con una es­tirpe gladiadora tan vieja como la historia de los hu­manos."

Agilulfo le dice que es un alma antigua, que lo ve en su aura.
