Communicating Science Workshop


Drop the Jargon and Tell Your Story

Learning Outcomes:

  • Students will be able to explain the importance of scientific communication.

  • Students will identify and practice engaging with a variety of potential audiences.

  • Students will use basic story structure to develop a research narrative.

  • Students will script, film, and edit 3-5 min research videos and gain technical skills in iMovie.

I developed and piloted this workshop as a 2-part series in 2016 and implemented the full workshop as a 4-part series in 2017 and 2018. Workshops were supported by the NSF REU program at Mountain Lake Biological Station, with valuable input from Dr. Eric Nagy.
