Digital Storytelling: sharing your research with the world


Participants will get techniques and tools to create content based on their research for different digital media – short videos, podcasts and blogging, both in video and in print.






This course will give participants methods to identify elements in their research with the potential to reach general audiences via digital media and how to express them resonantly. They will get techniques to recognize how video, podcasting and blogging work differently for audiences and which elements of their research are best suited for each. Learning the principles of digital storytelling will give them the confidence and skills to raise awareness of their work, cultivate their own audiences, and potentially inspire audiences worldwide to the excitement of science.

Study commitment

In preparation for the workshop participants should submit a short summary of an aspect of their research which has potential to be the subject of short video, podcast, or a video or print blog aimed at general audiences. 

Other relevant information

Please note that for this workshop you should bring a laptop/smartphone.
