Your Audience is Bigger Than You Think: Using Writing and Visuals to Communicate Your Research
Lyn Millner and Sharon Isern, Ph.D.
Our speakers—one, a journalist and author; the other, a scientist, artist and actor—show how to make your research compelling to a mass audience. Prof. Millner and Prof. Isern have worked extensively together in developing courses and techniques to mentor students in how to translate their work to those outside of their disciplines. See how other students have brought their research to life using techniques from story and art. You’ll come away with tools you can apply immediately.
Our student support starts with the application and aid process.
