with Tullio Rossi and Mike Young

Language: English

The workshop is open to participants from Italian Advanced Schools and Ca’ Foscari’s PhD students

The Research Communication Day is a one-day summer workshop tailored for International College's students and PhD candidates to introduce science communication theory and practice. Undergraduate and master's students will have the opportunity to participate for the first time in the educational offerings of the week.

During the Day, participants will learn:

  • how to craft a compelling research narrative and produce engaging videos using simple and accessible software.
  • how to communicate effectively on social media, to exploit the platforms as professional tools, and to avoid unnecessary distractions.

The workshop will offer two practical sessions:

How to share your science through captivating videos with Tullio Rossi

The aim of the training “How to share your science through captivating videos” is to equip you with solid multi-media skills that enable effective communication of their messages through the medium of video. Through hands-on practice and guidance from the instructor, you will learn how to craft a compelling research narrative and produce engaging videos using simple and accessible software.

Social media for researchers with Mike Young

The workshop “Social media for researchers” will show you how to use social media to extend your own impact, network with your peers, and get access to opportunities in both academia and industry. We will be mostly working with LinkedIn, but also either with the microblogging platform X (formerly Twitter) or one of its more recent alternatives.

The RCDay is open to participants from Advanced Schools and Ca’ Foscari’s PhD students.

Registrations are open until 15th April (80% of the available seats are reserved for Advanced Schools' students).

The Summer School and the participants from the Italian Advanced Schools are financially supported by the Ca’ Foscari International College, under the aegis of ASSI (Alliance of the Italian Advanced Schools).
