Hi. Hope to see you at AERA. I will present as past of a panel called 'In Support of Quality Research Use: Communicate Your Research to the World.' The four of us will offer our collective experience in helping researchers formulate and communicate their research to all kinds of audiences. My part of the discussion is titled, 'It’s a WEBLOGPOD Stupid! Why and How to Use New Technology to Communicate Your Research to Just About Anyone.' I'll focus on blogs and podcasts and social networking.
