Location

Zoom meeting

Description

Target Audience: PostDocs and other researchers who have to communicate complex ideas and results

Facilitator: Dr. Jernej Zupanc, Visual Communication Strategist & Trainer, Seyens Ltd., University of Ljubljana

Short Description:

People are 'visual creatures'. When reading research papers, conference posters or viewing slide presentations, we tend to look at figures first. If created properly, figures are the most effective way to attract audience, explain complex ideas in the shortest amount of time and raise your credibility. 

Learning objectives: 

    By the end of this session participants will ...

  • understand how design principles can be applied to to make scientific ideas and results more easily understood by peer scientists or other audiences
  • get feedback from the facilitator on their own scientific figures
  • be able to get expert advice on any question regarding visual communication in scientific papers, grant proposals, conference posters, and presentation slides

Content: 

We will comprehensively cover all aspects of science communication that is visual. The webinar is interactive and adapted to the audiences' research topics.

  • Communicating with scientific vs non-scientific audiences
  • Visual perception and what humans find intuitive
  • Colors: how to amplify, not ‘fancify’
  • Visual organization: simplifying comprehension through structured layout
  • Eye-flow: effortlessly guide the audience through the design

PARTICIPANTS CAN GET FEEDBACK ON THEIR FIGURES (submitted before the webinar)

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Spaces are limited to 16 participants. The priority is giving to Postdoctoral Scholars.

Registration deadline: April 14, 2020
