Analytic Storytelling is a method for people working with complex content. You will learn a step-by-step method to organise your content into a clear and compelling story that forms a solid base for writing or presenting. You can use these skills when pitching or presenting to colleagues as well as laymen, or when writing a paper or a grant application.
You will acquire skills to adapt your story to various audiences (from peers to laymen) and to structure your information in a strong, logical flow. You will learn how to provide a rich and relevant context and make original visualisations, while maintaining structure in your story. Using these skills you can adapt your story to various types of communication (scientific articles, grant applications, conference presentations) as well as to various types of audience.
This course consists of an online preparatory module (two hours) followed by two full training days with two hours of homework in between. The course contains a lot of exercises to put the theory into practice immediately. During the training you will work on a story of (one of) your own project(s). You will receive extensive feedback on your storyline from the trainer and your peers.
