Hi everyone,

Just wanted to remind you of this PCC conversation today, 3:30pm OCN 425.

I'm so excited to hear from the experiences of these two scientists.


*The Wild West of Online SciComm: a conversation with Heidi Roop and
Daniel Swain*

Digital news and social media has rapidly changed how the public consumes
information about science. Join us for a discussion with two geoscientists
forging new paths in this new media landscape to bring climate science to
the public. Conversation will include questions around:

- professional ethics in science communication
- emerging best practices on social media
- responding to questions about politics and public policy
- building a respectful online culture
- countering misinformation and fake news
- Open Q&A
