Postdoc Academy Masterclass: Storytelling for researchers

Thu 27 Jun 2024


We humans are storytelling animals. We have evolved with and through stories, sharing vital information about food sources and dangers but also morality and values, thereby bringing communities together.

In this information age, can the ancestral art of storytelling help researchers to better communicate their work?

In this 1-hour webinar, you will learn:

  • the functions and principles of storytelling
  • how to harness the power of storytelling to enhance your research communication, from public engagement events to job and grant interviews
  • the relevance of different storytelling elements for different media (talks, podcasts, videos, written articles)
  • the limitations of science storytelling.

Please note: it is important that when you book this course, on the booking confirmation page, select Add to Calendar to start importing the appointment to your calendar.
