Students and faculty who plan to attend the AERA Annual Meeting this year may be interested in a communications professional development course.
A half-day workshop, Communicating research through effective presentations, social media, and writing, will focus on these sometimes neglected skills.
Instructors will be Ron Dietel, assistant director for research use and communications at UCLA’s National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing (CRESST); Barbara McKenna, Communications Director for the School Redesign Network at Stanford University and for the Leadership for Equity and Accountability in Districts and Schools (LEADS); and Paul Baker, senior communicator at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER).
