PLAIN LANGUAGE TRAINING

The latest AAG Newsletter invites geographers to participate in two Virtual Events that may interest aspiring writers. Especially pertinent is “Plain Language Training” for those whose incomprehensible jargon cuts them off from public discourse.

If participation is restricted to members of the AAG, an Australian group might mount a similar event. Gobbledegook reached the Southern Hemisphere some time ago.

Upcoming Virtual Events Sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation

Two virtual events are upcoming that may be of interest to AAG members: 
 
Early-Stage Researcher Professional Development Series
 
The next virtual Early-Stage Research Professional Development session will take place 1 p.m. CT March 26 with mentors Maria Minniti (Syracuse University) and Sharon Alvarez (University of Pittsburgh).  This series is open to 15 early-stage researchers to connect with research mentors to discuss research approaches, professional development and the research career trajectory.

Plain Language Training for Early-Stage Researchers
 
Have you ever wondered about communicating research findings to policymakers, government officials, or other stakeholders outside of your discipline? Join us 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. CT April 16 for a Plain Language training provided by Bold Type. In this session we will discuss what plain language is and how to apply it in translating your research findings into usable information that drives impact.
