Second Communication Training Talk for Graduate Students
Want To Communicate Your Research? Tell a Story!
Humans are story-telling animals. We have been telling tales about our origins, or struggles, and our everyday lives for as long as we’ve had words.
Not only that, but online, on TV and through books and newspapers—even over coffee breaks—we take in dozens of stories per day.
So why not use this DNA-deep human trait to tell the stories that will make others appreciate and maybe act on the research and discoveries that you’re exploring in graduate school? Stories are the engines that can turn your ideas into action.
They also can ensure that the important, evidence-based work you do won’t get lost in the noise of the world. The difference can mean publication, a better job, and a boost to your career.
On Tuesday, March 21, the Graduate School is offering a hands-on (but non-threatening) workshop that will help you connect more deeply with wider audiences and decision makers. It will be led by two of CSU’s leading experts in the field: Professor of English, Emeritus, John Calderazzo and CSU Executive Director of Public Affairs and Communication and former TV newsman Mike Hooker.
Light snacks provided.
