Description: For your research to have maximum impact, it can’t languish on a single website or dusty shelf. This course will help attendees take a variety of stages – be they live, recorded, or written – and rock those stages. This course is based on content the presenter teaches at University of Cambridge on how to best communicate research findings and was inspired by her experiences sharing findings with large, diverse audiences. The presenter has taught this course (previously called “Strategies for Sharing Your Research”) for the past two AERA Annual Meetings. The course is appropriate for attendees who have researched (or are currently researching) any topic within the education field and who want their findings to reach as many people as possible in order to help as many students as possible. Attendees will learn about a variety of opportunities, how to land those opportunities, and strategies to maximize those opportunities to share their work with varied audiences. The course is split into three sections: laying the groundwork (branding, websites, social media, etc.), speaking (TED Talks, conferences, media interviews, NPR/radio, etc.), and writing (book deals, journals, magazines, etc.). Sections involve attendee participation, interaction, and hands-on activities to apply concepts to participants’ circumstances. Attendees will also learn about resources available to women and traditionally underrepresented groups so more diverse perspectives are represented in field dialogue. In addressing significant professional development issues (e.g., writing and speaking strategies), this course will encourage more dynamic, memorable research presentations and more accessible, widespread communication of education research findings.
