EB Attendees: Save Time for Communications!

Randy Olson, PhD, to present an interactive workshop on scientific storytelling

This year’s APS Communications Symposium “Storytelling: Mandatory Training for Today’s Scientists” will be an interactive session that you don’t want to miss.

Our speaker is scientist-turned-filmmaker Randy Olson, PhD. He’ll discuss why storytelling is crucial to the scientific community today and will help attendees develop new skills to communicate with job recruiters, university alumni fundraisers, and the public. An expert in the area of science communications, Olsen blogs and has written books on the subject including Don’t Be Such A Scientist! – Talking Substance in the Age of Style (2012) and Connection: Hollywood Storytelling Meets Critical Thinking (2013 – co-written with Dorie Barton, and Brian Palermo). He is a former Claude Bernard lecturer, a TEDMED presenter, and his feature film, Flock of Dodos, was shown at EB 2008.

Join us Saturday, April 26 from 3:00-5:00 PM in San Diego Convention Center Room 25C.
