Webinar: Science Storytelling in the Digital Age

August 10 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm EDT

Lisa Tossey, Maryland Sea Grant College Program Assistant Director of Communications and Outreach, will share her expertise in science storytelling in the context of the digital world in which we live. Register here.

Science communication can suffer from numerous pitfalls including jargon, complexity, a general lack of science education of the audience, and short attention spans. However, one of the most engaging ways to avoid these and connect with others about your science is by using basic storytelling techniques. And these days, you can literally immerse your audience in your work and make the experience fun by embracing innovative approaches using emerging digital technologies – both in capturing and sharing your work! We’ll take a look at the basics for capturing and sharing interesting imagery and footage of your work that will be engaging for your audience and cover what digital tools and online platforms may be the best choice for your program. We’ll also take a look at how to set-up and promote specific hashtags for your participants to use during your program or event so that you can easily compile them into a professional looking collaborative story that’s simple to share.
