Good conversation lies at the heart of many collaborations and discoveries. But it’s not always easy to translate ideas to written and spoken words.
At the Art of Conversation, WID’s Distinguished Scholars brought in national journalists, bloggers and successful scientists to lead engaging workshops and an evening talk to share tips on how to confidently and expertly portray science and ideas. Whether it’s making an elevator pitch, translating a research finding or experimenting with a science blog, participants gained real-world skills they may not normally be exposed to in their professional training.
The Art of Conversation Evening Talk on April 16, 2013, featured Peter Greenberg from CBS News, Dr. Jennifer Ashton from ABC News, Maureen Maher from CBS 48 Hours and Steve Paulson from To the Best of Our Knowledge. This award-winning group shared the behind-the-scenes stories of how conversation leads to discovery.
