Wednesday evenings during the 2017 Spring Quarter!
Communicating your research clearly, concisely and vividly is a crucial “soft skill” for today’s scientists. Telling your story effectively to corporate leaders, government officials and the public at large can influence policy, ignite funding and inspire passion for your work. This 10-week intensive course addresses the nuts and bolts of non- academic writing, creating strong visuals, and techniques on dynamically improving your spoken performance. The course culminates in your presentation of a six-minute “mini-TED” talk, which will be filmed and made available for your subsequent use. Check out our trainee TED-style talks here: GPS-BIOMED on YouTube!
Your teacher, guide and mentor is Sandra Tsing Loh, Caltech physics graduate, off-Broadway solo performer, and host of the syndicated radio show “The Loh Down on Science.”
