APEX: Understanding Your Audience

December 19, 2016

Can you communicate your research in a way that inspires your listeners?

Getting people to understand your research can make you more successful in building that network—whether it is a potential employer, a faculty member at a conference, or a funding committee. It starts by thinking differently about the needs of your audience—once you understand your audience better, you will be able to satisfy their needs—and make them more receptive to you and your work!
