I really liked the Poster design workshop, it was full of useful advice along with examples and work on our own posters, with a great rhythm ! Thanks for these 3 sessions.”

Een vorm die past bij jullie evenement

De vorm van de workshops is flexibel!

Sommige van onze workshops werken het beste wanneer ze over meerdere sessies wordt verdeeld. En misschien past het soms ook beter in jullie schema. We kunnen bijvoorbeeld een workshop van 4 uur opsplitsen in een introductiecollege, huiswerk voor de deelnemers en vervolgens een tweede sessie voor feedback en verdieping. Dit werkt ook goed voor studenten.

Meerdaagse ontwerpsessies

Onze workshops over design zijn erg geschikt om in meerdere dagen te geven. Dan hebben de deelnemers meer tijd om zelf aan de slag te gaan:

  1. Begin met Crash Course Design voor de theorie, best practices en tools.
  2. Vervolgsessie(s) om aan je poster, presentatie en/of visual abstract te werken met begeleiding en persoonlijke feedback van de workshopleider.

Combineer workshops

Als je een hele dag de tijd hebt, is het ook mogelijk om workshops te combineren tot een dagvullende workshop. Vooral onze Basics & Media combinatie (2 x 3 uur) is populair.

Liesbeth en Stephan inspireerden me om beter na te denken over de communicatie van mijn onderzoek. Ik vond het vooral gaaf om te leren hoe je een boodschap zo kunt overbrengen dat je zelfs bij de meest complexe onderwerpen de aandacht weet te trekken. In de toekomst zal ik al mijn berichten in een creatievere vorm verpakken.”

David Oerlemans, student at HAS

As a former teacher, I thought I’d gotten the basics of presenting down- until Liesbeth’s workshop showed me that presenting posters is a whole new ball game. In an engaging and interactive way she managed to keep everyone’s attention (which might be the toughest part of online workshops) and gave us tools and tips on how to improve your work immensely with simple changes. I’ve now gone on to share these tips with friends and coworkers so I would definitely recommend it!

During Bessensap, an annual event where science meets press, Stephan told a fully booked room about the do’s and don’t of science presentations. With all kinds of beautiful examples, he explained how graphs, photos and other visual support can complement a story, but also can take away from it. I’m sure it has inspired many members of the audience to create their next science presentation in a clear and creative way.

Workshop content design The Online Scientist

Liesbeth gave a great motivational ‘Impact with research!’ workshop for PhD students. She helped us dare to think bigger and gave us many tips to get started ourselves. Highly recommended!

Dorine Duijsens, PhD student (FWO-SB) at Lab of Food Technology, KULeuven

Liesbeth gave a 2-hour interactive workshop to our PhD students on how to create impact with scientific research. So much was discussed: How do you keep a poster readable? What do you put and especially NOT put on your slides during a presentation? What is the one-liner of your research? Liesbeth presented in a very spontaneous and open manner, and inspired us to get more out of science. Our participants were excited to put what we learned into practice.

Headshot Liesbeth Smit Wetenschapscommunicatie The Online Scientist

Liesbeth Smit

With a talk from Liesbeth, you’re guaranteed to stay awake and pay attention. She literally wrote the book on how to make great presentations. With her experience with science communication and design, she loves to inspire people to get more out of their research. Liesbeth uses design to makes even the most complicated topics easy to understand.

Whether it’s a class of schoolchildren or a room full of CEO’s, Liesbeth is an energetic speaker that will leave you with something to think about.

Stephan van Duin Wetenschapscommunicatie The Online Scientist

Stephan van Duin

Stephan built a diverse portfolio in science communication over the years. Besides co-authoring the book on presentations, he wrote three other books, created TV-shows and museum exhibitions and brought science to festivals and the media. The beauty is that all of these things start the same way, and he loves to share this process and necessary skills in our workshops. It’s hard to find a better sparring partner for science communication than Stephan.
