9:30 AM - 11:00 AM Talking It Up Without Dumbing It Down

Being able to explain your research to a non-specialist audience is an essential skill for graduate students — whether you are talking with a grandparent or to somebody in a human resources department.

By attending this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Confidently and concisely describe your research to a lay audience; and
  • Employ a metaphor to describe the nature and impact of your research.

Registration in the 3MT is not required to attend this workshop.
