Communicating Science


Thursday, January 24, 2019, 10:00am to 12:00pm


Science Center 302

In this workshop, designed for graduate students in STEM, we will develop and practice skills to meaningfully and clearly convey your research to different audiences, consider how to incorporate narrative techniques to motivate audiences to care about your research, and think about how we can use verbal and visual explanations to their best effect in all the forms of communicating science. In so doing, we will discuss the purpose of jargon and when it is most useful, some of the different purposes of “science communication,” and how to tailor our communication to convey intended meaning.

Register here.

This workshop is a part of Winter Teaching Week- a series of intensive workshops offered during J-Term in conjunction with January@GSASfor graduate student teachers at every stage, from just starting out to looking toward the job market.

Led by Susan Johnson, Assistant Director of Socially Engaged Learning, Derek Bok Center, Mara Laslo, Bok Pedagogy Fellow, Derek Bok Center and Mariel Young, Bok Pedagogy Fellow, Derek Bok Center
