WCHRI Lunch & Learn featuring Charity Slobod: "Propelling your research into the public sphere"
Tuesday, November 19, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Effectively communicating your research to diverse audiences outside your area of specialization can be an intimidating and extremely challenging process, and yet, increasingly there is an expectation that researchers are equipped with this skill. What if you knew the precise area of your research to highlight and how best to communicate that information? In this workshop, you will learn how to communicate the heart of your research for the purposes of different forms of public engagement.
Learning objectives for this workshop will include:
- How to communicate your research to a group of interdisciplinary peers, and
- How to document one to two sentences defining the 'heart' of your research.
- Charity Slobod, community connect lead and professional development coordinator for the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research (FGSR). For more than seven years, Charity has worked in the field of community outreach and engagement with a particular focus on supporting graduate students in developing effective strategies for sharing their research with non-specialist audiences.
