Telling your Science Story
Skills for Northern Research Impact: Workshop 1
Join ArcticNet and partners every month for a training series: Skills for Northern Research Impact. Open to ArcticNet researchers, students, HQP and Early Career Researchers, these webinars will help you build and practice science communication and knowledge sharing skills to connect with a variety of audiences and end-users. Stay tuned each month for new opportunities!
Have you always wanted to learn how to increase your engagement with the general public and get your research results out there? This workshop is for you if you have new research results or highlights to share and are ready to come with a story to tell.
Thanks to a science communications grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), The Conversation Canada is hosting a science-writing workshop for investigators, Highly-Qualified Personnel (HQP), postdoctoral scholars and Ph.D. students from ArcticNet-funded projects.
Participants will learn about The Conversation Canada, develop story ideas about their research and get feedback from peers and editors on their story pitch. The virtual training will consist of two half-days (2.5 hours) of interactive presentations, case studies and hands-on practice, with discussion and built-in breaks. Participants will learn how to build a pitch, structure a story and provide support for their idea when writing for the general public. Participants should come with a story idea (or two) in mind to work on.
Please note: space is limited. Registration will be capped at 20 participants for the workshops. Participants should be available to attend both sessions. First come, first serve.
This event takes place over two days. Participants should be available for both workshops:
Session #1: January 28, 2022, 12h30 – 15h00 EST
Session #2: February 4, 2022, 12h30 – 15h00 EST
