How to Effectively Communicate Your Science to Any Audience (Online Course)

You’re trying your best to communicate your work effectively, but listeners aren’t following you or they’re bored. You want your audience to see your work like you do - its value, its potential to change the world…but how are you supposed to communicate to non-experts about your research?

The New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS) knows how to change this situation. By attending their 4 weeks long online course on How to Effectively Communicate Your Science to Any Audience, starting on May 20, 2021, until June 10, 2021.

In this live, interactive course, you’ll learn to translate your research into clear, engaging descriptions so you can excel in job interviews, write lay abstracts for grant funding, and communicate with non-experts in any setting—from department and industry presentations to meetings with funders and even family get-togethers and chats with friends.

This course and community is custom-built for scientists to help you:

  • Advance your career
  • Get funding for your research
  • Feel understood and effective
  • Lifetime access to an online community of mentors and peers

In addition to the course benefits, you’ll also get unlimited access to a community of course graduates and others with experience and goals similar to yours with special events such as:

  • Mentoring and networking opportunities with easy-to-approach fellow group members
  • Fireside chats with experts in professional development, communication and more
  • “Ask-Me-Anythings” with course instructor Mark Bayer and NYAS leaders
