Polar 2018 Workshop Details

PEI Workshop - "Bridging the Gap between Research and Non-Science Audiences"


Monday, 18 June 2018
8am – 6pm
Room B Jakobshorn
Open to anyone

[read more="Read More" less="Read Less"] Polar Educators International (PEI) is a vibrant international network of educators and researchers, promoting polar education and research to a global community. It is our aim to provide a deeper understanding of current polar science to a broad international community including teachers, students, researchers, early career scientists, and the general public. In addition, our goal is to encourage clear and accessible communication of current research results.

The Polar Educators International Workshop at Polar2018 brings together educators and researchers in a collaborative workshop discussing the polar communication needs of this dual audience. Educators (both formal and informal and all age levels) benefit by building their polar research background knowledge and sharing ways to transfer that science content to their individual educational settings. Researchers benefit from communication strategies that work for all non-technical audiences. The focus of this workshop is designed to provide educators with the tools and strategies to meet the needs of their teaching situations. PEI’s workshop will intersect with the concurrent APECS (Association of Polar Early Career Scientists) workshop in innovative and exciting ways to meet the needs of both groups: educators and researchers. [/read]
