Tailored training

Create training to suit your needs, or the needs of your research group or institute.

From half-day, or full-day, make-your-own-content workshops, to large-scale lectures or interactive talks. Previous examples include:

  • science communication workshops for early career researchers
  • lightning talks at conferences with tips for busy researchers
  • insights into recent changes in New Zealand media and social media
  • sessions focused on data visualisation, animation and video

If your needs are not already covered by our standard workshops, please use our request form to describe what you are looking for, and we will follow up to discuss potential options.

Invited talks

Science Media Centre staff are frequently invited to speak at events ranging from conference plenaries for hundreds of researchers to guest lectures at universities and journalism training courses.

We can offer talks on a variety of science communication topics, including tips for busy researchers, communicating risk and uncertainty, Aotearoa’s changing media landscape and insights into the media’s treatment of complex issues like climate change, animal research, natural hazards and public health.
