Center for Undergraduate Research Hosts Communications Workshop for Scientists


Published on December 3, 2019

The Center for Undergraduate Research at USciences is hosting a workshop for future and current scientists on campus about communicating research and scientific topics. The workshop will feature Jayatri Das, PhD, chief bioscientist and director of science content at The Franklin Institute. 

The event will be held on Thursday, December 5, 2019 from 1-2 p.m. in Rosenberger Hall 102. The workshop’s purpose is to provide students and faculty the tools they need to communicate their science and scholarship in compelling and effective ways, especially to a broad audience. 

In today’s world of science marches, potential funding cuts, and discussions of the ethical impacts of technology, it is more important than ever for future and current scientists to be great communicators. Through discussions of evidence-based strategies for effective public outreach, you’ll gain perspectives on working with diverse audiences, develop effective messaging about your own research, and build the confidence you need to engage the public in conversations about the value of science in our lives.

Sponsored by the Center for Undergraduate Research (CUR). Funded by the Charles E. Kaufman Foundation, a supporting organization of The Pittsburgh Foundation. For more information, contact Dr. Roberto Ramos (r.ramos@usciences.edu)
