Maryland 4-H Extension Conference Room 8020 Greenmead Drive College Park, MD 20740

Cooperative Extension educators and other Extension staff can take advantage of a free professional development opportunity to practice clear communication techniques that will help you communicate clearly and effectively with diverse audiences. Bring communication products you want to work on and get guidance on how to draft, revise and improve!

Drs. Cynthia Baur and Virginia Brown will host the training. Dr. Baur is the head of the Horowitz Center for Health Literacy and the co-creator of the Clear Communication Index, an evidence-based tool used to help educators and researchers write public communication products. The tool, which can be used for fact sheets, research briefs and web-based documents, has been adapted to meet the needs of all Extension educators.

The training will take place on Thursday, November 14 from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm EST and include:

  • Training on the Clear Communication Index
  • Time to draft/write publications
  • Follow-up editing within 30 days of the training
