Extend your reach: Writing and publishing across disciplines

In this day long workshop, you will learn more effective ways to convey and communicate your research to multiple audiences and colleagues across disciplines. The day begins with a workshop on plain-language writing, including an overview of contexts that promote or strongly encourage plain language. After lunch (included), the emphasis shifts to the publishing process, strategies for assessing potential publication venues, and reaching wider audiences. Approaches to developing your research narrative will also be discussed, with a focus on tools for privacy, social media, and auditing and building your online academic portfolio. You’ll have opportunities to write and share your work with peers, and will take away practical strategies for conveying knowledge to a variety of readerships. 

Included: morning and afternoon coffee/tea with light snacks and lunch; if you have any severe dietary restrictions, please bring your own snacks and lunch
