Instead of short individual presentations, we have allocated 15 minutes for each group to present their research program to retreat attendees. Your presentations are essential components of the biennial retreat, and we want to hear about your research, but with a twist!
This year we are challenging you to communicate your science in an interesting and captivating way. Say goodbye to reading from power-point slides and hello to storylines, narratives, group presentations, and spoken art forms! Why? Compelling story telling helps us to remember content better and in more detail. It’s also much more engaging for the audience.
The choice of how you use your 15 minutes is yours (i.e. single or multi-presenters) and the possibilities are endless. For the adventurous… dance, song and humour are encouraged.
Minimum information required:
1) Who is in your group
2) What big research question/s you are trying to solve
3) Major results, successes and/or learnings since the last retreat or within the last year
4) How listeners can find out more/collaborate with you
