Rackham North: Communicating and Engaging Across Disciplines
Thursday, September 19, 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm EDT
- Workshop: 3:00 to 4:30 p.m., East Room, Pierpont Commons
- Research Remix: 4:30 to 6:00 p.m., Gallery, Duderstadt Center (Exhibit: Costumes)
Develop tools and skills to effectively communicate your passions, work, and research in a way that is accessible and meaningful to a broad audience. In this highly interactive session, join RELATE and Rackham North for a series of activities to explore communication skills with instruction and feedback from communications experts. Learn how to translate the value and relevance of work across disciplines to communicate your work in an elevator pitch style.
Following the workshop, ArtsEngine invites you to attend Research Remix for an opportunity to meet and mingle with grad students and postdoctoral fellows from the North Campus schools and colleges in the Duderstadt Center Gallery and to hear some of these communication/pitch techniques in action during short presentations from students about their projects and research. Participants are highly encouraged to attend both the workshop and the Research Remix session, but this is not required.
This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Space is limited. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
