About this Event

It is becoming increasingly important for academics to learn how to effectively disseminate their findings to a broader audience. This can be done in many different ways but in this webinar, we focus on communicating effectively through written pieces such as posters, infographics, blogs, short articles, etc.

In this session, you will gain practical tips for communicating complex scientific concepts to a non-technical public. This includes identifying who your audience is, developing engaging and effective messages that spark interest and enthusiasm, and using plain language to improve the accessibility and readability of your work.

We will also provide specific tips for creating great research impact posters and infographics that tell the story of your research in an appealing way.

Elisabeth Van Stam, University of Waterloo Writing and Communication Centre
