15:05 Workshop on “Storytelling in Science” (Analytic translations)
Frederike’s workshop on storytelling is a quick introduction into ‘communicating science’ using storytelling basics and theatre improvisation exercises to shape a scientific story and connect to your audience. We will discuss how much storytelling is useful and appropriate at your workplace and how you can you tell a story rather than a summary of your thoughts or data. To round off the workshop we’ll dive into some improvisational theater games. Improvisation is increasingly recognized to facilitate connecting with your audience- the basis for effective communication.
