Whether they work in the lab, the classroom or out in the field, University of Iowa faculty and staff are often called upon to explain what they do and why it matters to members of the public. But even the brightest minds sometimes struggle to find the right words, especially if the work is highly specialized or technical. This 90-minute workshop will provide tips for communicating effectively, whether you’re being interviewed by a reporter, briefing policymakers, or speaking at a Rotary lunch. An interactive exercise will allow participants to put those tips to work immediately.
