Communications Toolkit for Academics

Workshop Registration

CABS offers monthly workshops to give MSU academics the foundations needed to communicate research and scholarly work in a succinct and public manner, as well as providing tools and hands-on exercises to help refine communications skills.

In Fall 2017, there will be three different workshop topics in the Communicating Beyond Journals and Peers series. These workshops are complementary of each other, so while ideally you would take all three, you can choose from any or all of them.  

  1. An Introduction to Public Communication. The workshop will offer academics the foundations needed to communicate your research and scholarly work in a succinct and public manner, as well as providing tools and hands-on exercises to help you refine your communications skills.
