Professors Lisa Porter and Kim Rubinstein pilot "Inspiring Research: Creative Strategies for Communication" workshop

pilot workshop entitled "Inspiring Research: Creative Strategies for Communication" was developed by UC San Diego theatre professors Lisa Porter and Kim Rubinstein as part of Gradvantage, a new initiative that aims to prepare UC San Diego graduate students for careers outside of academia.

Held Sept. 8-11, the four-day workshop included concepts that Porter and Rubinstein developed for their “Cultivating the Creative Mind” curriculum, which draws on both neuroscience and theatre disciplines to investigate and ignite the creative mind. The workshop also incorporates techniques from the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University in New York.
One of the key goals is to teach students to authentically and spontaneously engage with an audience about their research—rather than simply delivering a memorized explanation of their work.
