How can you communicate your work better?

Communicating your science workshop

Through various practical activities, researchers will explore their work’s impact on society, improve their communication skills and receive direction on how to engage with different audiences. The workshop fee includes all resources, a full day's tuition with experienced practitioners and refreshments throughout the day. The workshop is organised and run by the British Science Association's Science in Society team

Participants will:

  • develop their understanding of the place of science within society and the impact of their work
  • gain confidence in engaging the public with their research
  • become aware of existing public engagement platforms
  • learn about how social media can be used to communicate science
  • find their research 'hook' - what's the most exciting thing about what you do?

This workshop is aimed at MSc (research) students and above and is ideal for PhD and early post-doc researchers from all aspects of the sciences.

NB - this workshop will only take place if 10+ participants register. In the event that this workshop doesn't take place, full refunds will be given.

When: we hope to re-open the course in 2015

Where: Dana Centre, London (map)

Cost: £50 (+VAT)

Refunds: Refunds will only be issued in the event that the workshop is cancelled by the organisers. If you book but cannot attend, you can nominate a colleague to attend in your place - please contact the Science in Society team as soon as possible to discuss this.

If you have any questions about the workshop, please contact the Science in Society team and we'll be happy to help

We can also run a bespoke, in-house workshop for your organisation - find out how we can work with you
