Faculty Workshop: Help Trainees with Scientific Communication
You are invited to participate in an interactive three-hour workshop on helping your trainees develop oral and written scientific communication skills. The focus will be on practical techniques and strategies that you can use in your mentoring immediately. Research has shown that engagement in scientific communication skills is predictive of trainee intention to pursue a research career in STEM.
Interested workshop participants will also be given the opportunity to join the NIH-funded research study “Scientific Communication Advances Research Excellence” (GM 125640, C Cameron and S Chang, MPI’s) investigating scientific communication skills as a mechanism for strengthening mentees’ commitment to research careers.
The workshop will be facilitated by Carrie Cameron, PhD, associate director of the Cancer Prevention Research Training Program (CPRTP) and associate professor at MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Shine Chang, PhD, Ashbel Smith Professor of Epidemiology at MD Anderson and director of the CPRTP. Both are members of The University of Texas.
