Please join us on Wednesday, February 14 at 12:15pm for a presentation and discussion from the Deputy Director for the Long Term Ecological Research Network Communications Office (LTER NCO), Marty Downs, entitled “Inside Peek: LTER Network Website”
About Marty’s talk:
You all know that the LTER Network Communications Office is based at NCEAS, but maybe you don’t really know what the LTER Network is. And when you wandered onto the old web site, you thought you’d stumbled into a dusty archive. The LTER NCO has launched the Network’s new website, but it is definitely still a work-in-progress. We would love to draw on the insight and ideas of NCEAS scientists: the exact audience we care most about (that is, scientists not currently associated with the LTER).
The roundtable will be interactive, with a very brief presentations about the audiences, constraints goals, and process of developing the website, followed by a look at the backend and a discussion of what works well and what could be improved. We will discuss some of the challenges encountered as well as short- and long-term solutions. It’s your chance to help solve a challenging sci-comm puzzle and learn a bit more about one of NCEAS’ major programs. To facilitate the fun, please bring a computer and meet in the Paseo Room.
This week’s Roundtable will take place in the Paseo Room at NCEAS, rather than the lounge. Because this week will be interactive, there will be no remote participation available.
