In September, DWFI-supported students gathered for a communications workshop to learn about DWFI branding, best practices in communication, use of video and social media, and the overall importance of communicating their research to a broader audience. The workshop concluded with a networking reception attended by faculty and off-campus partners, which gave the students an immediate opportunity to apply the skills they just learned.
Each spring, DWFI showcases supported-student research at its Student/Faculty Forum. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic quarantine this year, DWFI invited students to share their research through video or online paper submissions. Many of the students produced highly engaging videos, which are posted on DWFI’s YouTube channel. All research projects are available to review on the website.
