The Art of Storytelling: Enhancing Graduate Students' Oral Communication Skills

Tuesday, February 11th, 20202:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Presented by: Jennifer Green (Montana State University)


In this webinar, I will discuss a novel oral communication curriculum we developed and use with graduate students to help them communicate their scientific work with others. I'll use examples of how the students leverage elements of storytelling, stage presence, and improvisational skills to more effectively connect with and captivate audiences as they convey their research. We will also explore how these ideas can transfer into our own work, building a shared knowledge of how we can support students' (and our own) development of oral communication skills.
