Clarkson has partnered with The Conversation to promote our faculty as subject matter experts in your unique field of expertise. Each day they publish dozens of articles on timely topics such as COVID-19 and aerosols, where you sit in a room with COVID superspreaders, fake accounts on social media, and why a contested election won’t destroy American democracy, to name a few. They are always looking for new and unique ideas and stories from our faculty experts.
Please join us on December 1st from 1-3PM via Zoom (a link is below).
Things that will be covered:
- Why talk to the media;
- why it is important/valuable
- What do the reporters actually want when they request to talk to you
- How to frame your research so that it is consumable to broad audiences
- Ways to craft your message so that it is heard and used
