UVM Communicates: Sharing Your Research and Scholarship with the Public

Monday, October 09 2017
@ 8:45 AM- 5:00 PM
Join colleagues for a day of hands-on activities designed to help you communicate more effectively with the public, with funders, with policymakers, and with fellow academics. Lunch will be provided.

Inspired by our affiliation with the Alda Center for Communicating Science, the morning combines a short plenary with a series of fun improvisation exercises. These exercises are not designed to turn you into an actor, but rather to free you to talk more effectively and personally about your research or scholarship and establish a more direct connection with your audience.

Please come prepared with an informal three-minute speech about your research or scholarship. After lunch, you will work in a small group to refine your pre-prepared three-minute speech, and you’ll also identify strategies that will transfer to other presentation settings.

For more information, please see UVM Communicates.
