The Office of College Communications at Saint Mary's invites faculty members to join its roster of experts by participating in media training. College Communications will hold media training sessions on Monday, May 3 and Tuesday, May 4 from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m. in the Orinda and Lafayette rooms of the Soda Center.
College Communications works directly with reporters to provide them with academics sources, story ideas and expert commentary.
Through the program, faculty members will learn how to confidently interact with the media, what steps to take when a reporter calls, how to take control of an interview session, how to develop core messages and how to ensure those messages are effectively conveyed to a reporter. The sessions are also designed to help prepare faculty members in responding to journalists from a variety of media outlets - print, broadcast and online.
Each of the three and a half hour sessions are designed for six participants per instance and will include lunch.
To sign up for media training contact Mike McAlpin in College Communications.
