Explaining your research to ANYONE - inside or outside science

Aim:Participants will get practical techniques to express and explain complex ideas and aspects of their research to different types of audiences, including those inside and outside their particular discipline, the news media and the general public.
Provider: Eric May (link)
For:All PRBB residents

Knowledge and understanding alone isn’t enough; having the tools and techniques to express what you know effectively to people inside and outside your discipline and outside science is critical. The course will give participants tools to identify and understand the needs of different audiences and how to choose appropriate methods to reach out to them effectively.

This course will combine elements of previous Eric May courses.

Study commitment:

In preparation for the course participants should think about aspects of their research that they would like to explore and ways of explaining these ideas visually. More information about pre-course preparation will be sent to the participants before the course.
