Don’t Blind Them with Science: How to Write in Plain Language
March 4 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
619 Weiser Hall
Jill Jividen, PhD, Director of Research Development at the U-M Office of Research, will conduct a hands-on writing workshop that teaches researchers how to translate their work for lay audiences. In this 90-minute session, Dr. Jividen will present the tenets of plain language, offer strategies for making complex subjects accessible to non-scientists, and help participants simplify their own technical writing. Consider this workshop to improve your science communication (e.g., social media, blogging), hone your elevator pitch and/or craft your grant proposal abstracts.
Thursday, February 27, 1:00- 2:30 PM, Weiser Hall, Room 619
Wednesday, March 4, 11:30- 1:00, Weiser Hall, Room 619- FACULTY/STAFF ONLY
