Skepticamp 2014 Speakers: Matt Lowry

Matt is a high school and college physics teacher professor with a strong interest in promoting science education and critical thinking among his students and the population in general. He is someone who believes in Carl Sagan’s adage that “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
If you are interested in reading him expound upon various topics related to skepticism, science, and education, check out his blog, The Skeptical Teacher.

Skepticamp topic:
How Can Skeptics Communicate Better (with Non-Skeptics)?
This talk will be a series of anecdotes (gasp!) and advice based on my experiences on how to (and how NOT to) communicate with non-skeptics. Some come from interactions with my students and family, while others occurred in the digital wilderness of the Internet. Hopefully, you will be able to walk away with some tips on how to have a more productive conversation with that crazy uncle of yours the next time you see him.
