Please e-mail IIGBadmin@ucr.edu for Zoom Link.
Host: Taylor Myhre
Abstract: Whether you are interested in informal education and outreach or more formal teaching, you’ll be more successful if you engage your audience. We’ll discuss ways to connect your listeners to your topic, by drawing connections to familiar concepts, such as climate or nutrition. We’ll also discuss how to engage even the most resistant students (for example, some undergraduates taking a required course). A skilful communicator can make anything interesting, by cultivating curiosity and inspiring inquiry.
