How to woo French teachers to stay in Canada's schools


I was recently invited to write a piece for the inaugural launch of the Conversation Canada. If you're not familiar, it's a research news website that makes recent findings accessible to the broader public. It was a wonderful experience writing in this fashion, a nice change from academic writing. The turn-around for publication was incredibly fast - this was published within 3 weeks. I recommend trying it out for anyone who wants to disseminate their research to a global audience and go through the exercise of developing their "elevator pitch" (explain your research coherently in 3 minutes or less).

My experience with SSHRC Storytellers was a major asset in putting together this piece. All the information shared about using accessible language and imagery that connects with the reader was put to good use.
