Event Details

AMOS and the Bureau of Meteorology have joined forces with the Australian Science Media Centre (AusSMC) and online media heavy-weight, The Conversation, to deliver a media training workshop at the start of the AMOS conference with a focus on media skills for scientific research.
 

Science doesn't always fit easily into the mainstream news cycle, so this popular workshop has been designed to balance media theory and practice, to allow participants to develop media skills in a closed forum.
 

Your hosts are on hand to provide advice and tips, and answer common questions like ‘how can we effectively engage with the media?’, ‘how can we ensure our material is interesting and accessible to the person in the street?’, and ‘how can we maintain their interest, and explain complex theories in a way our audience can relate?’
 

Please register your interest as places are limited.

Organiser

Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society

The Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS) is an independent society representing the atmospheric and oceanographic sciences in Australia. It currently has over 500 members drawn from the Bureau of Meteorology, CSIRO, the university sector, other State and Federal agencies, as well as the private sector. Most members of AMOS are actively employed in one of the scientific fields covered by the Society, but the membership also includes university students, retired scientists, school teachers and others from the general community with an interest in weather and climate.

AMOS also has an important role as a credible, independent voice for the profession. As part of this role it has established Expert Groups in areas such as climate variability, weather forecasting and physical oceanography and regularly represents the views of its members to Government, institutes and the public.
