Basics of Storyboarding: Telling Your Science Story in a Visual Way
July 27, 2022 | Event Recording
In this webinar, learn about the process of storyboarding with Abbey Morris and Muriah Umoquit, students from Lifeology’s SciComm Certificate Program.
Storyboards are important tools that can help ensure that your narrative is shared in the clearest, most compelling and most creative way. Nailing the basics of storyboarding can set your science story up for success!
Learn about the cognitive underpinnings below and why facts alone are ineffective at changing someone’s mind.
Understand more about how brains process information, how this can fuel motivated reasoning, how motivated reasoning ultimately leads to the spread of mis/dis information, and what you can do about it.
Storytelling Tips & Practices for Writing a Lifeology Course
March 15, 2022
Lifeology courses are a unique format of science and health communication that requires careful planning, an engaging flow of information and short-form storytelling.
By the end of this webinar, you’ll be better prepared to write your own engaging Lifeology courses and work with visual storytellers to make them shine. Check out this What is Lifeology course to learn more.
Inclusive science storytelling can help make science relatable to more people. Begin being inclusive in science storytelling by incorporating a diversity of examples, characters and settings. Don’t stop there!
Learn what’s next & more in this webinar! Check out this Lifeology course on inclusive scicomm too.
Really good collaborations can do more than just get the job done. They maximize the strengths of each collaborator, accommodate their weaknesses, and end up with a result that’s better and more creative than any individual could have come up with on their own. But great collaborations don’t happen by accident —they take self-reflection, planning and care. Learn more in this webinar!
Join the Lifeology Co-Founder, Paige Jarreau, for a panel reflection on eventful times, pertinent events and influential people that shaped the relationship between science and society in countries and cultures around the world. Using a new ‘Lifeology’ flashcard course as an example, the participants will discuss the importance of reflecting on science communication history from an inclusive perspective.
Learn about the power of combining science and art—as an artist, scientist, or a scicommer. How do you make sure the story visuals add richness to the story versus being purely descriptive? What’s the value of working with a professional visual storyteller? How can you write about science while keeping visuals in mind? Join us for a free webinar event and learn best practices from experienced illustrators Doryan Algarra and Laurel Shelley-Reuss.
Let’s flex our empathy muscles! A big part of empathy is learning how to be curious rather than being judgmental, so in this session, we’ll practice some of those skills and talk about the social science evidence on why we care so much about empathy in communication…why not just send people a fact-sheet instead?
