Crowdfunding and Social Media: New Paths to Raise Funds and Visibility for Research
As traditional sources of research funding become more and more competitive, faculty members are seeking new ways of raising funds for their projects. Scholars and universities alike have become interested in harnessing the crowd to raise both funding and visibility for their initiatives. But it is difficult to know where to start in this uncharted terrain! Participants in this workshop will learn how to develop and run a crowdfunding campaign for academic research, and will learn the mechanics and skills necessary to teach faculty this emerging form of research funding.

He has taught classes on research engagement and crowdfunding, outreach, academic poster design, video production, and social media for scientists at universities and colleges across the country.
