What's Your Work About? Research as Storytelling

Learning how to communicate your research is invaluable in terms of your professional development and can be an important part of your career as a graduate student and beyond. Join us in this five-week program to develop your written, visual, and spoken communication skills. This program brings together GPSPD partners from the Judith Anderson Herbert Writing Center, the UT Libraries, and the Graduate School to help you as you answer the question “What’s Your Work About?”

All sessions will take place both in-person in Haslam Business Building, West Wing and by Zoom accessed through a Canvas course available to registered attendees. These sessions will be recorded and accessible through the course for those unable to attend the live session.

This workshop will provide tools and techniques for using the spoken word to communicate your research to a variety of audiences. This session is designed for graduate students who envision themselves explaining their work to potential funders, community partners, and other researchers in a way that is clear and compelling.

This session is part of a series; those who attend all five sessions will receive a digital badge! Visit this website to see more about the series and register for the series.
