The training is offered as blended learning that combines a self-study module and an online workshop.
Self-study via an online platform (12 month access)
Communicating with scientific vs non-scientific audiences
Visual perception and what humans find intuitive
Layout: simplifying comprehension through a structured layout
Eye-flow: effortlessly guide the audience through the design
Colors: how to amplify, not ‘fancify’
Typography for legibility, structure and aesthetics
Slides that amplify messages and don't distract when presenting
Posters: strategy and process for creating posters that attract and explain
Homework: you submit your images and slides for feedback
Online Workshop via Zoom
Recap and Q&A: an effective review of self-study topics and optional 1-on-1 consulting with facilitator to address your individual challenges.
Feedback on submitted materials: you will get actionable suggestions on how to improve your own images and slides.
Graphical abstract drawing exercise: you will draw a sketch of your research
Group peer-instruction exercise: we make groups so everyone learns to give and receive informed feedback to peers.
You will learn to visually communicate your complex research ideas and results so your messages are effortlessly understood by any specific audience (scientists or non-scientists). We will not focus on aesthetics but on how knowledge on human visual perception can help you create effective scientific images, slides, and posters.
You will design a graphical abstract of your research, discuss it with peer scientists in a group exercise, and get actionable advice and feedback on your own images and slides. It is an immersive workshop, comprehensive, structured, memorable, easy to follow, useful and fun.
