Communications experts from Cochrane invite you to a special session about communicating your research, aimed at authors and researchers who want to share the impact of their work with wider audiences. In this fast-paced 90-minute session we will go through some basics of science communication, ask thought-provoking questions, offer small group activities, and share case studies to enhance your skill in engaging others through confident storytelling.

This interactive session will cover:

  • Principles of science communication 
  • Guidance on maximising the impact of your communications, including advice on working with your institution’s own press office or communications team
  • Examples of good science communication and practical tips, for example, on using plain language and avoiding jargon 
  • Advice on how to tell a good story

Using storytelling tactics you’ve heard in the session, you’ll also have the opportunity to explore how you could communicate your own research.
