Last week, Associate Director for the Center for Public Engagement with Science Dr. Melissa Jacquart was featured as a speaker for the professional development workshop “Data and Computation Science Series.” The last session in the series, this week’s theme was “Promoting your Research and Research Impact.”
To help other researchers increase the impact of their research, Melissa discussed strategies such as the use of social media and reaching out to various in-person venues. She emphasized treating outreach as a two-way discussion rather than a one-sided “pitch.” She also encouraged researchers to consider their own goals and their target audience prior to presenting it to the public. Finally, she informed her audience of the service and goals of the Center for Public Engagement with Science, including support for outreach activities, partnerships, and training.
