Join us for the next brown-bag. The focus is on writing and sharing about your research in a way that resonates with your audience.

Tuesday, May 20th

12 noon – 1pm

LPSC Seminar room 402

Moderators:

Thuy Tran, Director of Marketing Communications, College of Engineering

Nick Houtman, Assistant Director, Research Communications

When researchers and communicators describe scientific concepts to decision-makers, peers, students and the interested public, language matters.  Come listen and contribute ideas on how to write clear and compelling stories without oversimplifying scientific principles.

Editors also play a critical role in defining standards of their publications to meet the readers’ expectation. Explore examples of print publications that cover technical topics.
