NTU: 21st Century Scientist – Infographics

28 March, 2018, 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Nottingham Trent Uni logo

In the modern world, graphs and statistics are everywhere.  What’s more, we don’t have to stick with rigid old excel graphs all the time.  Infographics are an incredibly popular alternative.  Furthermore, they can be snappy and eye-catching, instantly bringing in interest to what is written on them, highlighting the advantages of your innovation.

What’s on offer?

This workshop will focus on producing an infographic around one of your own pieces of work.  Furthermore, these will be put up for the group to see and offer feedback.

The workshop will include the following:

  • A short introduction by Dave Fairhurst
  • Example infographics presented by expert speaker
  • Delegates will then have time to prepare some of their work into an infographic with assistance from the speaker.  They will take turns to present this to the group.  The attendees should prepare some research they are happy to share before attending this workshop.

Many young scientists leave education with a brilliant knowledge of their subject.  However, they can be held back by shyness and a lack of education in the soft skills. This workshop aims to give you the footings to build a portfolio of these skills.  In turn, this will help you better communicate your ideas and projects to your contemporaries and colleagues in an effective manner.

This workshop is part of a series of workshops covering a variety of tools a modern scientist will need to innovate.
