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 Feb. 19–20.

The one-hour sessions are focuesed 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.

This partnership is a great opportunity for faculty members to engage the public and share their knowledge on a large scale.

The information provided was excellent, particularly the question-and-answer sessions were helpful. I would be interested in contributing articles to The Conversation.
