Practice and receive feedback on your draft Message Box from COMPASS staff and peers.

Working on a Message Box? Looking for some feedback? Come join us for a practice session!

Sometimes it can be a challenge to find practice partners to provide feedback on your messages. That’s why COMPASS staff facilitate these practice sessions for anyone who would like to practice and receive feedback on their Message Box. Bring your draft Message Box and be prepared to walk the group through your key messages and get feedback from others. Please plan to attend the full one-hour session so that you can both give and receive feedback!

Please note previous participation in a COMPASS workshop and experience with the Message Box is a requirement to participate in this practice session. The practice session is dedicated to practice and feedback, so we do not reserve any time to teaching the Message Box tool. If you want to learn how to use the Message Box and gain a stronger understanding of the science behind science communication, please check out our Introduction to Strategic Science Communication workshops.

Who could benefit from this workshop?

This workshop is open to anyone who has taken a workshop with us in the past, is familiar with the Message Box, and would like an opportunity to practice and receive feedback from COMPASS staff and peers.
