There are days when we all feel like no one understands our research work or why it matters. Educating the public about what you do can be frustrating, but it is critical.
That’s why I’m happy to share a new resource with you to help communicate your work to your colleagues and the general public. Research Decoded is a new podcast series we launched this month. It provides tips and examples in episodes no longer than 15 minutes.
Communicating your findings to the public is not only a requirement for most sponsored research awards, but it can help make big changes. UCF Biologist John Fauth, whose research looked into why coral reefs are dying, had his story told through the media around the world. Now several nations and Hawaii have banned certain sunscreens that include chemicals that hurt the reefs.
I encourage you and your research students to reach out to the communications team. We are here to help.
