Dr. Jenny Grant Rankin's 10th book, Sharing Your Education Expertise with the World: Make Research Resonate and Widen Your Impact, has just been released. It was published by Routledge/Taylor & Francis. This book covers content the author teaches in a professional development course each year at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting and in the Post Doc Masterclass she has taught once per year at University of Cambridge. This book helps any education expert (primary and secondary school teachers, administrators, education graduate students, professors, researchers, etc.) share what he or she knows with the world.
Too often experts speak in silos where they share with only one type of audience (such as teachers sharing with colleagues but not outside the school, or researchers publishing in academic journals but not in publications most teachers read). Other times experts try to share their ideas but don’t know the most effective or efficient ways to gain exposure. The more you share your knowledge, work, and/or research, the more you can help students. Thus, this book helps you “get out there” with:
branding (crafting your pitch, leveraging social media, etc.)
writing (landing book deals and succeeding in key writing opportunities)
speaking (giving TED Talks, delivering conference keynote presentations, appearing on NPR, etc.)
participating (making connections, influencing policy, etc.)
serving (such as joining panels and advisory boards)
honors (winning awards and recognition to expand your platform)
media (landing interviews and contributing to public dialogue)
Special features include downloadable eResources that provide hundreds of opportunities (links and details to apply to be featured on radio and podcasts, present at conferences and other events, write for different publications, have one’s book published, etc.), templates, and exercises. Though pursuing the prospects in this book will enhance your resume, CV, and career, the greater incentive is that you’ll enhance more students’ lives when you share your expertise with the world.
You have something valuable to share. Open this book and step onto the world stage so you can help as many students as possible.
