[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
- STAGE FRIGHT

[Day1: Strategic SciComm Through Play]
Often times, when talking #SciComm #SciOut #PubEng #SciEng #SciEdu #SciArt, we spend a lot of discussions on the idea of play + joy + fun for target audiences.

As a practitioner, do use "play" to get better in your practice? If not, why?
Do opportunities & spaces to "PLAY" with your craft/skills in communicating #science even exist for you?

For academics, the lack of opportunity to learn+practice+play w/ public speaking significantly impacts careers, like favoritism of "charismatic ppl" to bad teaching habits.
In the #Arts + #SciArt, rehearsals + practice time is crucial in honing your craft.
In #MuseumEd & #projectdevelopment, there are stages for prototyping, focus grouping, beta-testing to "play".

In #Academia, prof dev workshops exist, but do you have a space for practice?
