Individualized Faculty Coaching and Resources

Would you like to...

  • Receive feedback on your presentation for a nontechnical audience?
  • Manage stage fright or presentation anxiety?
  • Build rapport with an audience by being more authentic and in the moment?
  • Practice responding to interview questions clearly, concisely and compellingly?
  • Try out your pitch to donors or venture capitalists?
  • Optimize your camera, microphone, lighting and Zoom settings?
  • Discuss how to tailor your graphics, data displays and other visuals for specific audiences?
  • Get support with vocal aspects of communication, such as articulation, projection and effective use of pauses?
  • Develop a short media-friendly, student-friendly video about your research for your website?
  • Work with a writer who can help you develop non-technical entry points for your website (and lay-language abstracts)?

The Research Communications Program offers a variety of workshops as well as individualized feedback and coaching for faculty.  We can also create a tailored small group session for you and your colleagues/mentees.  We offer these supports at no charge thanks to a generous grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
