Storytelling for Scientists Workshop

Storytelling for Scientists

About the course: 

One of VALIDATE’s key aims is to 'help interested people in the general public find out more about our research and the diseases we’re tackling in an accessible format'. With this in mind, we have asked First Create The Media to provide our members with training on how to best communicate their scientific research to the general public. In Storytelling for Scientists, you will delve into the techniques of narrative and storytelling to discover tools and tips to help you communicate your research in a clear, compelling way. This is an excellent opportunity for members who wish to enhance their engagement and science communications skills.

You'll learn:

  • What we mean by 'story' and why it's important
  • The first thing you should always do before you start creating your story
  • How to craft a compelling story, including structure, plot, characters, action, setting, emotion and ‘diamond details’
  • How to use ‘cover versions’ and alternative perspectives to make your story go further
  • Practical advice and tips for how to tell your story 

Please note that spaces at this workshop are limited to 30 participants and that VALIDATE is paying for members to be able to attend this amazing training opportunity. To avoid taking a space that could have been allocated to another member, please ensure that you are free at the stated time.
