Presenting your science
Scientific talks--conferences, seminars, lab meetings--are part of every scientist's career. But how do you get your point across effectively and, hopefully, enjoyably? This 2-hour workshop will break down the craft of telling engaging stories about science to audiences. Led by communications coach Dr Jana Bachmann, this session will be a useful tool for any scientist who needs to talk about their research. Detailed topics include:
  • Stories and science
  • Identifying and using a narrative structure
  • Attention grabbers: Examples/ Objectives/Results/Difficulties
  • Framing
  • The dramatic arc
  • How to combine reductionism and accuracy

This event is part of the PR bootcamp series, and is free for all at MPIAB. For more information, or to receive the link, contact Carla Avolio
