We are delving into all sorts of new territory with this workshop, notably that it is our largest online workshop to date. That said, we will make an extra effort to make the workshop a personal and interactive experience so that we all have an opportunity to get to know each other and to work together.
So we will kick off this process with a thread where we can all introduce ourselves. Let us know your name, where you work, the type of work you do and what prompted you to take this workshop.
I'll start: I'm Karin Kirk and I am one of the organizers of this workshop. I am an employee of SERC, the Science Education Resource Center out of Carleton College. I telecommute from lovely Bozeman, Montana where I also work as a ski instructor (thus I have my own motivations for preferring a cold climate!).
In past workshops and webinars we have noted a strong interest in the topic of effective communication of climate topics. Thus, we decided to dedicate an entire workshop to this fascinating subject. I am very much looking forward to learning from our speakers and from all of you over the course of the workshop!
