Dear STEM Ecosystems,
The STEM Learning Ecosystems Initiative will be offering several supplemental webinars over the next couple months exclusively for the STEM Ecosystem communities. The Frameworks Institute /After-school STEM Hub webinars are being made available through the generosity of the Noyce Foundation, STEM Next and The STEM Funders Network. Please feel free to invite those from your community who may find the topic important to their work. Details and registration info are noted below:
Webinar: Frames for the Next Four Years: What Transitions Mean for Issue Evolution – December 1 @ 12pm ET/ 9am PT
Presented by the FrameWorks Institute – Sponsored by the Afterschool STEM Hub (http://www.afterschoolstemhub.org)
Presidential transitions offer a unique window for shaping the policy agenda, and the rhetoric, of the incoming administration. To make the most of them, it is important for advocates to consider the frames they introduce into the conversation, and to begin as they intend to continue. (For instance – although advocates might gain initial attention by positioning STEM learning as providing an edge in a Global Competition, in the long run, this frame has unproductive effects.) In this session, FrameWorks social scientists will offer insights about social issue evolution – showing why and how issues move an issue onto the public agenda, and illustrating strategies for moving them up the list – and demonstrating specific framing strategies that can help, or hinder, this process.

Webinar: Frames for the Next Four Months: Integrating Transition Strategies with Framing Strategies – January 4 @ 12pm ET/ 9am PT
Presented by the FrameWorks Institute – Sponsored by the Afterschool STEM Hub http://www.afterschoolstemhub.org
Most advocates recognize that message discipline is important, but struggle to align their many different kinds of communications, for diverse purposes and varied audiences, around consistent language. A deeper appreciation of the distinctions between strategic framing and strategic communications can help. In this session, FrameWorks will outline a process for using the same frame in different communications, illustrating it with examples specific to informal STEM learning and the kinds of materials typically used in transition education/outreach campaigns. We will review common communications traps that can weaken your messages’ effectiveness and practice staying out of those traps by applying tested tools that work to increase people’s understanding of informal STEM learning, how it works, and why it matters.

We hope you find these beneficial. Sincere thanks!
