The Informal Science Communication Workshop explores ways to create informal conversations that cross disciplinary boundaries and engage voices within and beyond Brown. The Sheridan Center's Kathryn Trenshaw and Jessica Brodsky will start the workshop by describing their experience with two informal communication projects at Brown: Science Friday, an informal meeting for STEM faculty to discuss teaching and learning, and Science Underground, a science cafe for scientists to share and discuss their research with the Providence community. Participants will share their own informal conversation experiences and brainstorm ways of engaging in low-stakes communication activities with different audiences.

Amy Cheng Vollmer has been teaching biology in a small liberal arts college setting for 30 years. She has three major points/pieces of advice to share – that are not discipline specific. Putting the focus on the audience, not being a slave to the syllabus and giving up control can be liberating and will allow you to play to your strengths.
