Talking space science

Thursday, September 29 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm


This popular workshop will be held online, via two 90-minute Zoom sessions. The output-oriented course will teach the essential skills and strategies needed to present space science and technology research to a wide range of audiences.

The first session runs from 9.30am to 11am and the second from 2pm to 3.30pm, Melbourne time.

Among other things, the course will cover fundamental principles of giving speeches, conference presentations and Ted talks, thus equipping budding space science communicators with the confidence and media savvy required to project messages clearly and simply.

Hands-on training will be provided in delivering talks and preparing PowerPoint slides and illustrative material for many outlets, including in-house, local and international presentations and the digital media.

Participants completing the course will acquire valuable skills, including those needed to give after-dinner talks about space science and technology to experts and laypeople alike. Worked examples, reference materials and background notes will be provided.
