Science, Engineering and Food Science

Improving your Science Communication

Communication is central to science/engineering. Not everyone is comfortable speaking in public, but it's a skill that can be learnt and improved with practice. This workshop will highlight training opportunities.

Communication is central to science and engineering, whether with other experts, customers, funders or the general public. In every job or profession, good communicators make good leaders. Not everyone is initially comfortable speaking in public, but it's a skill that can be learnt and improved with practice.

There are a number of opportunities available in UCC for training in science communication, which will improve your skills and also allow you to prepare for events and competitions such as Famelab, UCC Science for All, UCC Doctoral Showcase, Thesis in Three, Pint of Science and Soapbox Science.

Plus, you can get 5 credits for your participation if you register for the PG6014 module in Science Communication and Outreach.

If you are interested in improving your science communication skills, come along to the Pharmacy lecture theatre LG51 in the Cavanagh building from 2- 4pm on Friday 12th December and meet Fergus McAuliffe and Ruairi Robertson as well as the trainers and local organisers. Learn how to discuss science effectively, and speak to other researchers on their science communication experiences.
