Tailored training

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

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

  • science communication workshops for early career researchers
  • full day workshops including on-camera training
  • interactive talks at conferences on crafting your message
  • insights into recent changes in New Zealand media and social media

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.
