Explorathon_poster magnifying glassThis workshop is actually at 1 Morgan Lane, but Google does not recognise the address!

This workshop is ideal for Explorathon student volunteers and others who are new to engaging members of the public with their research. It is an interactive session which looks at:

– Reasons to communicate (with different publics)

– Thinking about your audience in terms of who they are, their motivations for being there, how to facilitate a good experience

– Various tools to build a narrative e.g. simple structures, jargon busting, use of questions, signposts, body language

It is suitable for researchers working on any research topic.
