The first cycle of our Online Series concluded with a CHERN research and communication skills workshop – Effectively Communicating Your China Research. The workshop held by CHERN’s Science Communication Manager Jelena Gledić (University of Belgrade) is aimed to help you enhance your science communication skills. Whether you are a seasoned expert or just making your first steps in the world of science, getting your point across and presenting your research to peers or the general public always has its challenges. This workshop aims to cover the basics of communicating your work effectively and efficiently and engaging different types of audiences.
Following the latest trends in science communication and state-of-the-art training offered by the COST academy, CHERN’s Science Communication Manager covered the following topics:
- Choosing your platform – deciding where to publish your research, but also where and how to publicize it, is a crucial determinant for the impact it will have
- Knowing your audience – regardless of the platform you choose, you need to adjust your message so that it leaves the right impression
- Managing your effort – there is only so much time in the day, and understanding the odds of achieving your goals can help you choose how to spend it more wisely
- Minding the mindset – research related to China and Europe will likely always be understood within the context of existing preconceptions
- Utilizing CHERN – to maximize the networking potential that CHERN offers, you need to know the options and requirements for sharing your work via CHERN
Through the workshop, participants learned how to enhance their science communication skills and strategies and become more effective, efficient, and engaging!
