Leana Nordstrom brings a diverse set of communications and project management skills to EDC's STEM education initiatives. Currently, she manages the CADRE (Community for Advancing Discovery Research in Education) resource network that EDC leads for the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Discovery Research PreK-12 Program. In this role, she oversees the project’s social media outreach and other communications, contributes to the project’s website content, and manages the logistical aspects of CADRE’s work. As the communications lead for EDC’s Oceans of Data Institute (ODI), she disseminates the work of ODI’s portfolio of projects through newsletters, a website, blogs, press releases, and social media. In this post, Leana describes a user-friendly toolkit that CADRE has developed to help researchers strategically disseminate their findings to support the field in improving STEM education. The toolkit also provides guidance for anyone who wants to communicate important messages to key target audiences.
