    RELATE is an eight week workshop designed to support STEM researchers in communicating with non-expert audiences. This summer, Rackham Graduate School and the RELATE team invite you to participate in the first RELATE communication training workshop for STEM researchers. If you are interested in improving your communication skills and engaging in scientific communication to lay-audiences, then the RELATE workshop is for you! Here are details of what you will gain during the 2 hours per week/8 week workshop:

    • Learn effective communication techniques in order to talk with lay-audiences about your research
    • Build skills and develop a talk about your research that is appropriate for lay-audiences
    • Present your talk during a series of science cafe outreach events in late summer 2014

    If you are a candidate-level PhD student and are interested in participating in RELATE, please attend one of our mandatory information sessions Friday, April 4 or Wednesday, April 9
