This is a Notation Track workshop.
Development Domain: Scholarly Expertise
Description: Knowing how to communicate complex concepts in understandable ways that put non-experts at ease is very useful to all students, whether they aspire to careers in academia, industry, entrepreneurship, law, or government policy, or they just want to make every-day social situations more fun. Fortunately, this kind of communication is something anyone can learn to do. Join Dr. Bill Messner for an enjoyable evening of examples, anecdotes, instruction, and practice of this extremely useful skill.
