This workshop brings together experts in different fields – writers, broadcasters, publishers, industrialists, computer scientists, and presenters – to help you explore and develop your communication skills. The course is open to PhD students and postdoctoral researchers working in genetics and related areas.

An important part of science is getting your results and ideas across to others, through papers, presentations, theses, grant proposals, conversations and interviews. Your audience may include specialists in the field, those from other disciplines, industry, or the general public.

This workshop (date and venue TBC, but planned to be online) brings together experts in different fields – writers, broadcasters, publishers, industrialists, computer scientists, and presenters – to help you explore and develop your communication skills.

Working together with others on the course you will learn how to structure stories, bridge disciplines, simplify concepts and communicate effectively with a range of audiences. You will also get in-depth tutoring and practice in one of three streams: storytelling and public talks, developing hands-on demonstrations or multimedia (podcasts/Youtube).

The Genetics Society will cover travel (within the UK only), accommodation and meals for successful applicants.
