Title:Information: Transforming the World through Better Communications
Author(s):DuBois, Charles; Dietel, Ronald; Welshons, Marlo; Shaffer, Kelly
professional development
Abstract:A central tenet of the iSchools is that “the right information delivered at the right time to the right people in the right form,” will “provide society with the key to success.” (www.ischools.org/oc/study.html) For this goal to be realized, information scholars and professionals must effectively communicate their knowledge to those people who will do something useful with it. The purpose of this roundtable is to increase the communication skills of session attendees in support of both iSchool and iConference 2008 goals. More specifically, this communications roundtable will provide time-tested communications tips to improve participant’s ability to focus their information message, identify key audiences, and improve their presentation, writing, and media skills. The session will also draw on the diverse positive and negative experiences from attendees, sharing their personal experiences in communicating effectively with different audiences and through different formats.
