IMPRS-LS Workshop

Storytelling for Science Communications


Date: Monday 8th - Tuesday 9th November 2021

Location: online

Trainer: Kristina Popova

Description: In this workshop the participants are introduced to the storytelling elements and formulas applied by the entertainment industry, and learn how to use them to effectively communicate scientific research. The workshop focusses on storytelling as applied to science talks, however the same tools and structures can also be applied to writing. Throughout the workshop we build upon the prepared presentation drafts, introducing the storytelling elements and structure into each of them. Towards the end of the workshop, we put the acquired knowledge into context and look at how scientists can use the same techniques in their day to-day life.
