New Media Workshops
LASP and CCLDAS offer professional development workshops for practitioners of New Media; our focus is on providing an introduction to particular fields of lunar science, and to the scientific process itself. These professional development workshops are designed to bring practitioners of New Media and scientists together for an intensive, two-way learning experience.
Target participants for our media workshops are those who use New Media—blogs, Twitter, Facebook, podcasts, video, online communities, etc.—to inform the general public about science and, in particular, space and atmospheric science. Our attendees may or may not have formal training in either journalism or science.
