Whether networking, presenting a poster or showing slides, scientists are constantly called upon to explain and justify their research to their peers. This training will provide participants with strategies and tools to do so clearly and convincingly.
The training consists of two parts: an open session (registration required) and a closed session (application required).
Open session: Fundamentals of Oral Communication in Science
A three-hour webinar will cover the basics of oral communication. The attendees will be introduced to the foundations of effective oral and visual communication of scientific and technical information, supported by findings from neuroscience, linguistics, and marketing.
This webinar is open to the entire life sciences community in Chile. You can register here. Please note that this training does not cover science communication to non-scientific audiences.
Up to 24 researchers will be selected to participate in the closed component of this training. The participants must prepare an assignment which will be evaluated by the trainer and their peers . As a result, the selected researchers will receive personalized and intensive training aimed at improving their oral communication skills.
