The Conversation Faculty Information Session

The Conversation specializes in promoting academics as public scholars and authors of news content focused on research. A team from The Conversation will be leading optional training sessions for faculty members on Tuesday, August 9 and Wednesday, August 10. Tuesday, August 9 sessions will be by appointment only. If you are interested in scheduling a time, please contact Lindsey Owen at

The one-hour sessions are focused on helping faculty be successful in “pitching” their research stories.

All training sessions will cover the same material; there will be time for questions and to talk through potential pitches. If a faculty member cannot attend the time that most aligns with their subject area, they will receive the same information from another session. Any faculty member can attend any session.

Wednesday, August 10 at 2:45pm to 3:45pm
