The following survey is being sent to gauge interest among faculty in participating in a Communicating Science Workshop that is sponsored and conducted by facilitators from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The half day workshop, which enhances public education and outreach skills, was launched at the 2008 AAAS Annual Meeting in Boston and has since provided more than 220 workshops for over 7,000 attendees at universities, science society meetings, and government agency labs in the US and abroad. We are excited about bringing the Workshop to Auburn University for faculty in all disciplines and hope you find the time to complete a short survey to help us in our planning. It is appreciated if the survey can be completed by March 18th.

Please contact Bob Holm at x4-5877 or with any questions or comments.

Digital Projects for the Public grants support projects that cogently interpret and analyze humanities content in formats that will attract broad public audiences. Digital platforms- such as websites, mobile applications and tours, interactive touch screens and kiosks, games, and virtual environments- can reach diverse audiences and bring the humanities to life for the American people. The program offers three levels of support for digital projects: grants for Discovery projects (early-stage planning work), Prototyping projects (proof-of-concept development work), and Production projects (end-stage production and distribution work). While projects can take many forms, shapes, and sizes, your request should be for an exclusively digital project or for a digital component of a larger project. 

All Digital Projects for the Public projects should 
- present analysis that deepens public understanding of significant humanities stories and ideas; 
- incorporate sound humanities scholarship; 
- involve humanities scholars in all phases of development and production; 
- include appropriate digital media professionals; 
- reach a broad public through a realistic plan for development, marketing, and distribution; 
- create appealing digital formats for the general public; and 
- demonstrate the capacity to sustain themselves.
