For STEM Professionals
The goal of the Alda Center’s Science Communication Workshops is to help participants learn to communicate more effectively with people outside their field. including the general public, policy makers, the media, students, potential employers or funders, and prospective collaborators in other disciplines. Through discussion and practice, we will focus on fundamental skills — knowing your audience, connecting with your audience, and speaking clearly and conversationally about your work and why it matters.
For Medical Professionals
We use innovative methods to help medical professionals learn to connect and communicate responsively with patients, families, colleagues and the public. The Alda Center method includes improvisational theater exercises, as well as other techniques, to help doctors-in-training learn to listen intently, read verbal and nonverbal cues, and respond with greater empathy.
We plan to schedule a Clinical Communication Boot Camp in 2018. Please check back soon for details.
