Professional Communication Skills Boot Camp
January 8, 2024 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Update: This event has been moved to January 8, 2024. Those who signed up for the October 2, 2023 event will receive priority registration for the rescheduled date.
The Professional Communication Skills Boot Camp is intended to increase students’ confidence communicating to broader audiences and practice developing persuasive skills that will create effective messaging and relay the importance of one’s research.
The Boot Camp takes a development approach and is based on practice and feedback. The expected outcomes include a polished elevator pitch for non-expert audiences, increased confidence in impromptu speaking as a novice scholar, and skills with responding to questions about your research. We anticipate participants to be from a broad range of disciplines.
The workshop is free of charge and open to all master’s and doctoral students regardless of discipline. However, it does require a full day of participation in person, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (with breakfast and lunch included).
