This workshop covers opportunities for humanities and social sciences graduate students to participate in K-14 outreach, and introduces students to techniques for adapting their research presentations for a K-14 classroom.
The workshop will be led by Shane Carter, who is currently the Program Coordinator for ORIAS (the Office of Resources for International and Area Studies). ORIAS does outreach to K-14 teachers, providing resources to help in the teaching of World History and other international topics. One of the office’s programs is a Speakers Bureau, featuring graduate student speakers who share their expertise with middle and high school students. ORIAS is a joint project of the Area Studies Institutes on campus.
Open to UCB graduate students, postdocs, and faculty in all disciplines.
This event is part of the Humanities and Social Sciences Communication Series, presented by Graduate Division’s Professional Development program, together with the Townsend Center.
This series will bring together panels of Berkeley faculty, graduate students, and staff who excel at engaging broad audiences on humanities and social sciences topics, across a variety of media. Each panel will be followed by a workshop highlighting a campus resource that students can use to hone their communication skills.
We hope that graduate students, faculty, and staff who work in the humanities and social sciences will join us for this exciting new series!
