2016 Abstract-Increasing the Visibility of App Ling: Communicating w/ the Media and the Gen Public
Share |
How can applied linguists communicate the importance of their work to the media and the general public? In the first part of the workshop, AAAL Executive Committee members Jeff Connor-Linton and Aneta Pavlenko will discuss strategic initiatives in-progress, including the AAAL Expert Database. Our aims are to get feedback and identify AAAL members interested in ‘translating’ applied linguistics research for the media. In the second part, Daniel Perrin (Vice-President of AILA) and Jeff Martin (AAA Communications Director) will discuss specific strategies that can help us make our case in clear language and in compelling ways that capture the public’s attention.
