Yesterday, I attended this STEM communication workshop, organised by FameLab winners & lead by this year’s winner, Dr. Kye. It was super useful and filled with loads of new stuff, and on top of that I get to know some new researchers and learn all about themselves and their work, all equally interesting.
One of the most important steps shared in preparation for your speech is to know who your audience is, and in knowing so, you can tailor your speech to suit their level of knowledge. They shared this video where biologist Neville Sanjana explains one concept in biomedical science in 5 levels of difficulty according to the audience’s demographic traits, and while I might have seen it, I forgot how delightful this video is.
Which level are you? I am mortified to announce that I am between Level 1 & Level 3.
