How to make your science a story
Humans respond to stories: we’re wired for it! Rafael E. Luna, author of “The Art of Scientific Storytelling” will discuss how to frame your science as a story for your audience. He will cover how to use literary tools to create a story arch, and how to weave your story into a conversation. This workshop will be 1.5 hrs, and will include group exercises to teach you how to reduce jargon, reduce distracting and unnecessary details, build confidence with an audience, and improve active listening skills. The optional take-home exercise will help you practice storytelling on your own. The food provided will be pizza!
