Conducting scholarly research and delivering lively and accessible presentations draw on two very different skill sets. This workshop offers a practical bridge between the two. It provides specific strategies and concrete tools to help you more effectively tell your research story in ways designed to engage a broad public audience, either directly or through the media. Focused questions, short exercises and media-friendly approaches will help you distill dense material, identify and incorporate relevant and creative elements, and structure clear and memorable communications.

Presenter: Shari Graydon, Catalyst, Informed Opinions

This workshop will take place in English.

Entreprendre une recherche savante et savoir en exposer de manière engageante et accessible les tenants et aboutissants exigent un savoir-faire très différent. Cet atelier jette un pont entre les deux. Il propose des stratégies ponctuelles et des outils concrets pour vous aider à mettre en valeur les résultats de votre recherche de façon à susciter l’intérêt d’un large public, soit directement soit par l’entremise des médias. Des questions ciblées, de brefs exercices et des démarches conviviales vous aideront à distiller une matière dense, à identifier et incorporer des éléments pertinents et créatifs et à structurer des communications claires et mémorables. 

Présenté par Shari Graydon, formatrice, Informed Opinions.

Cet atelier sera présenté en anglais.
