Research communication is much more than just writing journal papers; to maximise the impact of your work, it’s vital that you make your research findings accessible and engaging to a wide audience. Data storytelling is a powerful way achieving this, by conveying your ideas in a clear and memorable way.

This workshop focuses on developing your data storytelling skills, using practical hands-on sessions that combine the three elements of data, visuals and narrative to construct a meaningful and memorable story about your research. By using these three elements, you can weave a story for an array of audiences, in a way that they will connect with and remember.

Learning Objectives

  • Convey the meaning of your research to a wider or non-specialised audience

Syllabus

  • Understanding your audience
  • Storyboarding a data story
  • Exploring visualisation tools
