Rutgers faculty and students are doing fascinating work, with many of their studies capturing national interest.  What are the most effective ways to convey our research ideas to newspaper, radio, and television reporters, once you’ve captured their initial attention?  What are the biggest mistakes that academics make when sharing their research with the general public?  What’s the first thing we should do when we get a call or email query from the media?  This panel will feature seasoned journalists who can share tips about the missteps academics may make when sharing their work with broad audiences, as well as Rutgers faculty with expertise in communicating with the media.
