Course II. Effective Communication Skills for Scientists



DATOS SOBRE LA ACTIVIDAD

OBJETIVOS:

AIMS:

Presentations, posters and articles are the opportunity to broadcast your work to
the scientific community and the general public. Although these forms of
communication are an integral skills. Too often, unattractive and overloaded
scientific presentations and publications will confuse the audience and pass by
unnoticed. Provided you have solid data and a story worth telling, your
communication should be able to capture the attention of its intended audience. To
do this, both content and presentation of your science are important to transmit the
story you want to tell.

In this intensive and highly interactive course, we will focus on basic and advanced
skills in science communication. Students will be introduced to modern theories of
communication and the latest trends in design and presentations. Overall, the course
will provide a hands-on approach with plenty of exercises on: title and abstract
writing, constructing a story, principles of design and layout, use of graphics and
colours, graphs, slides, poster and infographics preparation, presentation
techniques, delivery and effective use of voice and body and the use of new tools to
prepare your communication.

By practicing and constantly refining their skills through continuous feddback from
the professors and peers, the participants will learn how to capture the attention
of their audience and effectively tell their scientific story.
