A topic near to my own heart…..

For quite some time now, I’ve been helping teach others about the art of communicating science. Academic scientific writing unfortunately tends to use exclusionary terms and communication methods. Even worse, many scientists are just not very good at it (as anyone who’s been to a major academic conference can attest. This slide show was recently brought to my attention by The Momentum Institute (@MomentumIonE). It covers many of the most important issues regarding how to present science to general audiences and has a lot of good advice for science communication in general.
