Talk Specifications and Resources
As the vision for IHE-LeaD is to reduce societal boundaries to and increase the accessibility of scientific knowledge, this interdisciplinary symposium will welcome attendees from a wide variety of backgrounds. We therefore ask that presenters tailor their talk to a diverse audience. We have provided some resources below that we hope will help presenters to design a talk that is broadly accessible.
Talks will be given on May 12, 2023. For each talk, a slot of 20 minutes will be allocated (15 minute-presentations + 5 minutes for questions).Research for giving a scientific talk:
Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD): Ruth Yow, Anna Tinoco-Santiago (5/11 at 9:15 - 11:30 AM)
This workshop will provide an introduction to Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD): working with communities based on their assets, or strengths. Participants will explore how an orientation to gifts and assets instead of problems and deficits can positively change both the processes and outcomes of collaborations intended to make communities healthy and sustainable. The workshop is open to symposium attendees of all backgrounds who wish to learn more about outreach, collaboration, and sustainable, community-driven development.
How to Develop Your Science Communication Strategy: Stephanie Castillo (5/11 at 9:15 - 10:15 AM)
Much of our science communication is based on outdated practices and consensus on what we believe is “effective SciComm practice.” So before you leave the ivory tower to talk about your research and how it may impact the local community or policymaker, there are five fundamental tenets to keep in mind. In this workshop, we will review science communication theory to inform how we inform our practice. You will walk away with a defined understanding of your topic, audience, location, medium, and messaging.
Social Impact of Technology: Mapping and Storytelling: Elise Li Zheng (5/11 at 10:30 - 11:30 AM)
How to make technological innovations more socially responsible and benefiting more people? Or, how to make it WORK? In this workshop, participants will learn the skills and frameworks to map out the social impact of technologies and link the impact with various groups of users and their needs. Through the interactive mapping activity, participants are encouraged to develop their own narratives and stories of technology and use them in practical scenarios such as communication and outreach activities.
Participants don’t need prior knowledge of mapping; they are expected to learn some basic social science concepts during the mapping activities.
