I will be joining Future Fellow Dr Vera Weisbecker in the BIOL EMCR event “How to prepare a kick-ass DECRA” — a short workshop on preparing a DECRA application.
“Impact” is the grant word of 2018! In my part, I’ll be showing potential applicants how to make their work, ideas, and impact (past and future) shine through on the application’s first page.
I will be speaking about the intersection of art/literature and science at the annual Biosciences Education Australia Network (BEAN) forum.
“The BEAN forums are designed specifically to be of interest to colleagues across all of STE(A)MM, as we really seek to explore ways in which to best prepare ourselves and our students for learning in the 21C. In particular, to explore how we can collaborate to enhance the curriculum from an interdisciplinary perspective that draws from all areas of academia. Please encourage your colleagues from other disciplines to join us!”

This workshop will focus on writing strategies that increase the impact of scientific research across academia and to the public. The stories we tell the world matter, and how we tell them means everything. Participants will learn how to frame their work in a narrative format that is more appealing and memorable to academic and public audiences and will do some individual and collaborative writing exercises based on abstracts, elevator pitches, and opening paragraphs to papers.
