Storytelling for Researchers
A common mistake graduate students make in their professional communications is focusing too much on data and the process of collecting that data and not enough on the story behind the research. Often you will have to share your research with a general audience who will not have the full technical background you possess and will quickly be lost in the mires of facts, figures, and equations. It is often these same people you will need to convince to fund your research, project, or business. Learn to capture the essence of your research, and find the story behind it and why it is important to you and the world. Come join literary consultant Charli Mills to learn how to tell the story behind your research. A great prep session for this year’s Three Minute Thesis contest.
