Communicating Science to Nonscientists with Jean-luc Doumont

Dr. Jean-luc Doumont

You're an expert and you want to get the word out about your latest research.  How do you do it? 

Don't just pack all your data into slides and hope the audience stays awake.  Dr. Jean-luc Doumont of Principiae explaines why scientists are often perceived as living in their own impenetrable world, discussed the challenges of communicating with a lay audience, and suggested strategies for overcoming them.  He spoke at Stanford's Clark Center on April 12, 2012.

Dr. Doumont holds a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Stanford.  Doumont's talk was sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning at Stanford University.
