Relevate recruiting graduate student presenters for RelTalks webinar series

Submitted by Paige McAllister

To increase access to evidence-based information on mental and relational health, Relevate created the RelTalks public scholarship series.

Since the first series, more than 200 people attended live, and the recordings have been watched 1,200 times on YouTube. Watch previous talks at youtube.com/c/MyRelevateTV

Relevate will host its third series every week from Oct. 14 to Nov. 18. We are looking for graduate students to present on how their passions and research on mental and relational health can benefit the many concerns facing individuals, partners and families today.

RelTalks are a great opportunity for graduate students to increase the impact of their work and receive individualized coaching from the Relevate team on public scholarship and engaging a non-academic audience. All webinars are recorded, so participants will have an example of their public scholarship to use in the future.

If you are a graduate student interested in presenting, please send a short proposal — 200-400 words — detailing your presentation topic for a 20-minute presentation. Proposals should:

  • Be grounded in theory and research — with citations.
  • Explain relevance of the topic to a public audience.
  • Detail practical applications that attendees can take away from the talk.

Send proposals and any questions to Paige McAllister at paigemc4@k-state.edu by Sept. 25. Proposals will be reviewed and scored by the Relevate team and presenters will be notified by Oct. 1.
