Telling your science story to non-scientists

June 22 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Sophie Ader & Jess Cartwright are going to deliver a training session to the students on Wednesday 22nd June at 1-3pm

The training is about communicating science to non-scientists. The training will take place at the Elkhorn Training room and zoom link is available for people unable to attend in person.

for an informative and interactive session on translating your science through presentations, in a way which non-scientists can understand and make meaning from.

In particular, we will look at how you can develop and deliver presentations for and to Indigenous audiences using an Indigenous ‘8 Ways Learning Framework’,  developed by Indigenous scholar Dr Tyson Yunkaporta through his own PhD.    HOWEVER, this translation approach can be applied to any audience, non-indigenous and Indigenous.

Recently joined PhD candidate Jess will also be helping to deliver this session, by outlining how you can explain complicated nutritional content in ways which are easily understood by non-scientists.

Broad session outline:

  • What does it mean to ‘translate’ your science?
  • Why translation is so important:  for you, Indigenous and non-indigenous audiences, and broader humanity
  • Introduction and brief overview of the Indigenous ‘8 Ways learning framework’
  • Tips on explaining nutritional information and terminology in a simple way
  • A worked through example: Halophytes Presentation
  • Interactive session for you to practice and share
