The root of the word ‘communication’ is ‘communis’, meaning to make common. Unfortunately, many of us in the education and grant-funded sectors struggle with identifying the main messages we need to make common to our key stakeholders. And for many of us in the ATE community, we could use help in creating simple, memorable ways to speak and write consistently about our project and center’s work. Clearly defined and consistently implemented mission statements and messaging platforms are key to ensuring that all points of contact with your project or center will reinforce the right messages.
In this live webinar, we will be joined by Farra Trompeter, Vice President of Big Duck – a communications firm that works exclusively with nonprofits based in Brooklyn NY, and Rachael Bower, Director/PI of ATE Central, who will review how these messaging elements can be created to more effectively engage students, partners, funders, and other key external audiences. For those who attended the ATE PI pre-conference workshop, we’ll also revisit the relationship between brand strategy (positioning and personality) and messaging. Farra will provide some examples of how other organizations define and use these tools with examples you can learn from, as Rachael helps connect lessons from the wider nonprofit world to the ATE community.
Researchers Joshua Smith and Stacey Gifford from IBM's Nanobiotechnology Program cover the latest research on the relevant biology found in fluids from liquid biopsies and discuss opportunities in microfluidics for disruptive technology development to isolate and interrogate these biomarkers, aiding disease diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment-response monitoring.

A strong evaluation plan will give your proposal a competitive edge. In this webinar, the essential elements of an effective evaluation plan will be explained and demonstrated how to incorporate them into a proposal for the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education program. This webinar also provides guidance on how to budget for an evaluation, locate a qualified evaluator, and use evaluative evidence to describe the results from prior NSF support (required if you’ve had previous NSF funding). Participants will receive an updated Evaluation Planning Checklist for ATE Proposals and other resources to help prepare strong evaluation plans.
