Story Telling in Academia

Story Telling in Academia
    All research publications are now available online. Although this access makes scientists? lives easier, it brings difficulties: researchers have to process more information than ever before. If research results are to stand out in this information overload, authors must apply mechanisms for engaging their readers and increasing reader retention and recall. One successful mechanism is providing a narrative in research reporting. This workshop will allow you to reflect and develop a stance on the current push towards narrative/story-telling in academia. By the end of the workshop, you will have a better understanding of how to put a narrative in your research reporting and an Abstract containing a narrative structure of your current research.

Seminar contents:

   - Identifying and using a narrative structure
   - Stories and science
   - Writing about and presenting research
   - The dramatic arc
   - Abstract writing
