Storytelling is an incredibly powerful communication tool that isn’t used often in research communication. Commonly we instead use clinical communication styles focussing on facts and data.

In this session we’ll explore storytelling techniques and discover how you can use it in your research studies.

There are specific tools you can use and features you can easily add to your communications to ensure your research connects with audiences in a more influential way.

In this hands-on workshop you’ll learn about the physiological effect stories can have on people and how they influence. We’ll get you started with some simple strategies and methodology that will enable you to confidently introduce storytelling techniques into your work to assist you in sharing your research for maximum impact.

This session is also a lecture in CPR6100 – Communicating and Promoting Your Research.

This workshop is designed to address the specific research training needs of Higher Degree by Research and Honours students.
