Workshop: Communicating Science to Non-Scientists

June 24, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Faculty often have to describe their research to non-scientists such as donors or media.  This can often prove difficult when the employee is fully immersed in the science.  Back by popular demand, Jean-luc Doumont will come to the university for a new session on communication and offer advice that works well for addressing both scientists and nonscientists alike. 

Doumont is an articulate, entertaining, and thought-provoking speaker who successfully reaches a wide range of audiences worldwide, as a trainer or an invited speaker at companies, top-ranked universities, research laboratories and major conferences. He is an engineer from the Louvain School of Engineering in Belgium and holds a Ph.D. in applied physics from Stanford University.

Breakfast will be provided.

When: Monday, October 10

Time: 8 a.m. – 10 a.m.

Where: BSRB Seminar Rooms (1st floor)
