Workshop: Clear, Concise & Convincing: How to Communicate Your Research to Increase Your Impact
October 19, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Host Presenter: Shari Graydon
This highly interactive and applied 3-hour workshop provides scholars across disciplines with practical tools and research-supported communication strategies aimed at increasing their capacity to make clear the value of their research and ideas. Mastery of subject matter is less useful if it can’t be successfully relayed to non-experts in a way that compels engagement.
Convincing decision-makers and funders not already concerned about your issue, or familiar with its nuances, to care requires more than data. This session walks participants through exercises that help them to think differently about their research, and to identify ways to share its potential impact more accessibly and creatively. Content covered includes:
- Why your future depends upon being able to reach beyond the “ivory tower”
- How to overcome “imposter syndrome”
- Four principles of effective messaging and how to apply them
- How to structure presentations, and marry data with stories to engage and persuade
