Are you a scientist working in Queensland?
Do you want to tailor your communication about your research (oral and written) in a more effective way?
Do you need to engage with difference audiences such as media, grant funding bodies/investors, and the wider community to achieve expected outcomes?
The science communication workshops in the renewed Queensland Talking Scientists Program may be the answer.
Funded by the Science Division of the Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts, these workshops (valued at $500 per participant) will be available to scientists who work in Queensland.
These 1-day workshops will focus on the following key areas:
- general communication skills (media communication and community/stakeholder engagement)
- writing (getting to the point of the science you are involved in your work, understanding what is required for mediums such as media, web and social media, and grant applications)
- pitching (science of story-telling, elevator pitches, oral communication skills, and media interview skills)
- cultural competency (top tips for communicating with international audiences including potential Chinese and Indian investors as examples).
