Workshop: Communicating Scientific Research
Scientists must communicate their results and describe the consequences of their research in an effective manner; otherwise the quality and importance of the scientific research have little value. The information should be presented at the right level of detail and in a manner that targets the audience. The Simula School of Research and Innovation invites PhD students in Science and Technology programs at Norwegian universities to take part in an intensive workshop on communication of scientific research.
Essential communication skills for scientific researchers
The workshop Communicating Scientific Research will take place at Voksenåsen kultur- og konferansehotell in Oslo, 9 to 11 March 2009. Experienced course instructors will help PhD students unleash their potentials as communicators of scientific content through a combination of lectures and hands-on training.
The workshop consists of four modules; Scientific Presentation, Fielding Questions, Communicating Science to the Public, and Scientific Writing. Read more about the workshop modules.
The workshop includes plenary lectures, and hands-on training through helpful critique sessions. The lectures include critical examination of excerpts from actual research documents and analyses of recorded presentations given by outstanding speakers. The techniques presented in the lectures will be reinforced in the critique sessions.
