PhD Plus Presents: Storytelling for Science Communication

Nov 18

Teer 203

For most audiences, stories are more interesting, understandable, convincing, and memorable than evidence-focused communications. However, scientists are unfamiliar with this literature and often resist or distrust storytelling approaches. This workshop focuses on how to develop and tell personal stories about science with intellectual honesty and ethical consideration. Lecture and discussions will share research on storytelling and narrative persuasion and highlight the value of personal stories in science. While completing hands-on-exercises at this workshop, participants will learn how to find and develop their own deep human stories of science.
