Abstract

Storytelling practices have been used effectively to transmit research in other disciplines such as languages and literature, economics, psychology and sociology. Developing storytelling skills in the STEM disciplines may enable students to better communicate their research to a more diverse audience. The aim of this session is to outline a process of developing students’ storytelling skills to aid public engagement and foster community participation in research. By the end of the session, attendees will be able to evaluate storytelling as a creative practice, undertake a short written storytelling activity, and identify opportunities where this process could be applied in their own teaching and disciplinary context.
