UM BRIDGES offers Bridging Science and Practice graduate seminar

science and practice gears co-rotating

Join us for this 1.0 credit seminar that will focus on how science moves into decision-making and how we can work with end-users to make our science more relevant and actionable, especially at the food-energy-water nexus.  We will cover public perceptions of science, doing team science and co-production, working with stakeholders and tribes, communicating complexity and uncertainty, conflict resolution, and integrating science into policy-making. Course will include short lectures, class discussion, and small group activities, with a few guest speakers throughout the semester.  Open to all graduate students (as space permits).  The seminar will be on Mondays, 3-4:20pm in CHCB (Clapp) Room 304. The seminar is co-instructed by Laurie Yung from the College of Forestry and Conservation and Alisa Wade from the Geosciences Department. The course is co-convened as GEO and NRSM 542 (CRN 35113/35114).
