Overview

Your hard-earned knowledge and research deserve to be shared effectively. And your audience in person and online expects to be engaged and understand what you’re saying and why its important to them.

This applies to your colleagues as well as key decision makers – science researchers, journalists, policy makers, public, business investors, stakeholders and non-expert audiences you want or need to reach.

If you want to develop your story, design impactful content, and deliver your thoughts, visions and ideas in a way that arouses interest, drives engagement, and drives action, we can help.

This course will help scientists, researchers, and academics develop the skills they need to communicate clearly, effectively, and authentically, in person and online – in print, video, images, animation or live presentations

When scientists learn better communication skills, they not only convey their research to a broader audience but also become better connected to their own scientific communities.

  • Critically analyse scientific communication from a variety of sources

  • Design and produce a strategic communication strategy
