Dr Samer Angelone
There have been great scientists that dropped out of school, but there have been no great scientists that did not tell stories!
We seek to challenge, inspire and train scientists to use narrative techniques and strategies employed in film to produce persuasive presentations and publications. Borrowing communication strategies and techniques from filmmakers and applying them in science communication will help scientists for better communication of their research, and scientists are wise enough to do so!
Workshop contentTheory:• Story and narrative, storytelling in science, documentary vs. fiction, documentary modes, and alternative narrative structures.
