Tim Miller (view biography)
The scientific process is not just about generating ideas; it is about freely sharing those ideas with the broader world. Now, more than ever, the ability to recruit students, attract colleagues, garner attention, and secure funding is tied to your ability to successfully communicate the results of your work, both to peers and to the general public.
Communications expert Tim Miller has spent his career helping scientists and students bring their work out of the laboratory and share it with a wider audience. For a variety of reasons, communicating your research with nonexperts is an important skill. In this session, attendees learned the fundamentals of sharing science as Miller explained how to choose the very best tools to do the job of communication, and revealed some of the tips and tricks that can help attendees take their scientific presentations to the next level.
Presentations conducted by Tim Miller of Spoken Science
Admission was included with 2011 MRS Fall Meeting registration. No additional registration required.
