24 March 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Marcie Grabowski
Outreach Specialist
School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST)

In this session, we’ll talk about why, where and how to communicate with non-experts about a field of study or the findings of your particular research. Considering the perspective and priorities of your audience is key to successfully and meaningfully communicating your message(s). We will discuss a couple tools and several guidelines to help distill a significant amount of information into a succinct and impactful message. There are a broad range of communication platforms available and individuals have various preferred styles. I will provide a list of venues/ outlets for sharing your message and a list of questions to get you started on a press release to share your findings with the media.
