Workshop on Effective Science Communication

    As a researcher you need the skills to communicate clearly and to the point in a lot of situations: When interacting with other scientists or colleagues with a different background; when writing applications, when giving interviews to journalists. During Publicér's Workshop on Effective Science Communication you work hands on with communicating your own science. You learn the basics of journalistic writing and how to adapt the journalistic method to oral, written, and video presentations. You carry home a set of tools making it so much easier to explain your research the next time you need to do so. The workshop is approved for 1 ECTS at six Danish universities.

You are invited to participate actively in a comfortable learning environment, where you and the fellow participants discuss, cooperate and inspire each other. The workshop is dynamic, demanding and entertaining: Brief theoretical and practical instructions by the lecturers are followed by individual work or group work on issues like:

    • How to analyze your target group, understanding the needs and interests of your audience

    • How to do a brief oral presentation, a video presentation, and write a short journalistic text

    • How to translate science writing to language that is understood by the general public

    • How to work with the press and get your message through

    Workshop i Effektiv Forskningsformidling

    Forskere har glæde af at kunne kommunikere tydeligt - mundtligt og skriftligt. Det gælder, når de skal samarbejde med andre fagfolk, når de skal søge penge, og når de skal i medierne. Publicér har udviklet en 'Workshop on Effective Science Communication', som vi afholder på engelsk og dansk. Her bliver forskere i løbet to dage markant dygtigere til at definere deres budskaber og formidle dem. Deltagerne er meget tilfredse. Evalueringer på KUScience, DTU, IT-Universitetet og i Region Sjælland giver workshoppen en samlet score på godt fire ud af fem mulige point. Alle deltagere anbefaler andre forskere at deltage i en lignende workshop, og workshoppen er godkendt at ph.d.-udvalg på seks universiteter til ECTS-point.
