Event Description
In the era of fake news, it is critical that research be translated and published as widely and accurately as possible. Among many journalists, however, academics are notorious for their caveats, sub-clauses, and unwillingness to tell a good story. This session will offer a framework, tools, and actionable strategies to write research narratives that inform and engage non-specialist audiences. We will explore how to create common ground, prioritize key points, preserve credibility, and invite curiosity. The principles we will discuss can be applied to a wide range of genres such as op-eds, educational case studies, and funding proposals, and job interviews.

This concise, interactive session includes 20 minutes of presentation to frame the content, a 10-minute reflective exercise, and 60 minutes of facilitated seminar discussion to answer questions and apply the learnings to participants’ experiences. Participants leave the session with a three-page resource to guide their next steps.

Breakfast will be served!
