AGU Session ED047 – Sharing Their Science: Enabling Scientists in Public Engagement and Communication Efforts

Scientists share their science with broader communities through presentations, social media, events and activities, and more. This session seeks to discover the ways in which scientists are sharing their science and the barriers they face, and how they can be supported by communications and education professionals, organizations, and their institutions. We welcome presentations demonstrating the diversity of scientists’ activities to engage audiences, as well as indications of support, such as professional development and existing and potential partnerships to expand reach. We welcome evidence of the impact of public presentations, activities, and events by scientists. Our broader goal is to develop a deeper understanding of how the science education and communication communities can better support scientists’ engagement efforts.
