Knowledge Translation Workshop

There is little doubt that the best speakers and presenters are excellent storytellers. Despite this, most researchers don't think in terms of telling a story when asked about their work.

In this 75-min workshop with Selina Omar Allu, a knowledge translation broker at the University of Calgary, you will learn why stories are important and be introduced to classic techniques to help you create a compelling, personal science story that will capture your audience's attention.
