Sharing Academic Research with a Broad Audience: Insights from Dr. Tovah Klein, Psychology Professor and “Toddler Whisperer“

Thursday, October 27, 2016
12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

Whether you’re considering a career beyond academia or would like to be an effective public scholar as a future faculty member, you’ll need to be able to share your research with a wide audience. Dr. Tovah Klein, a Duke psychology Ph.D. alumna, has used her research on young children as a faculty member at Barnard College, Columbia University and Director of the Barnard College Center for Toddler Development to develop a popular following as an expert on toddlers. Her appearances on “Good Morning America” earned her the nickname “toddler whisperer.” She has also appeared on CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Parents,, Huffington Post, and Psychology Today, and was a developmental advisor for Sesame Street. In this talk, she will share her stories and strategies for translating academic research for a lay audience.
