Graduate Student Council Fireside Chat: Fundamentals of Public Scholarship

Mon, April 11, 10:00 to 11:30am, Convention Center, Floor: Level One, Room 140 AB

Session Type: Invited Speaker Session


A central goal of education research is to use scientific knowledge to strengthen and improve education for all. While at times a daunting task that all educational researchers pursue, we have learned that the general public and policy makers also drive changes and improvements in education. As a result, it is essential that the knowledge educational researchers discover be used in shaping public knowledge and the political environment with which educational policies are made. In the spirit of the conference theme, this session will present strategies, techniques, and skills related to public speaking and improvisation as well as how to tell your research “story” in ways that people outside of academia will care.
