Storytelling & Storyboarding Science

Public cible:
The workshop is intended for all levels (master, PhD and postdoctoral students, associate researchers and professors). The aim of the workshop is to learn "the language of filmmaking" which is universal for all fields of knowledge (Social Sciences, Humanities, Exact and Natural Sciences).

There have been great scientists that dropped out of school, but there have been no great scientists that did not tell stories!
We seek to challenge, inspire and train scientists to use narrative techniques and strategies employed in film to produce persuasive presentations and publications. Borrowing communication strategies and techniques from filmmakers and applying them in science communication will help scientists for better communication of their research, and scientists are wise enough to do so! 

Program Information
I. Theory:
Scientists learn how to borrow communication strategies and techniques from filmmakers and how to apply them in communicating their science. This will help them to engage audience and increase uptake by incorporating narrative attributes into their teaching, divulgations and publications.
The theoretical part consists of : stories and narratives, storytelling in science, documentary vs. fiction, documentary modes, storyboarding and script, nonlinear narratives, theory of film editing. 

II. Practice:
Scientists re-write their biographies, abstracts and presentations by using narrative attributes used by filmmakers

III. Preparatory work “Storyboarding & Storytelling Science”
Two stories and one abstract
Please send us at least 2 weeks before the workshop the following:

  1. Three lines telling a story about one of your research topics
  2. Three lines telling a story about your biography
  3. The abstract of one of your recent publications/posters/presentations

Learning outcomes:
After this course, participants are able to:

  • Build persuasive communication of their research, for divulgation and publication 
  • Prepare a cinematographic stories and scripts about their research
  • Cette formation n’est pas prise en compte pour l’obtention de l’Attestation didactique de la HES⁠-⁠SO.
