Engineers often need to discuss their research with non-experts. This one-session workshop covers the contexts and purposes of these talks, as well as doing audience analysis and discussing one's message adapting to a particular audience. These adaptations include language use, appealing to different learning styles, and nonverbal communication. This workshop is offered two to three times per year.
