IN PERSON Storytelling Workshop- November 16, 2023

The Knowledge Translation Program at The Hospital for Sick Children is excited to host an in-person workshop on storytelling! Registration for the November 16, 2023 “How to tell the story of your work” session is now open. This workshop was developed by Renira Narrandes and has been licensed to The Hospital for Sick Children.

Why should I take this workshop?

Storytelling is a powerful knowledge-sharing tool that can help you connect with your audience, get your message across, and be memorable—at conferences, retreats, meetings, and anywhere you speak about your work. It’s also useful when describing the impact of your work to funders and the general public, or when developing knowledge translation products, such as videos.

What will I do in this workshop?

  • Explore the art of storytelling as a method to communicate your work, engage others, and inspire action
  • Examine real examples of stories that have been developed based on scientific projects and annual reports
  • Debunk five myths of science storytelling
  • Learn how to prepare, structure, and tell a story well
  • Discuss the importance of considering/measuring a story’s impact
  • Be inspired to use storytelling for professional communication (not something you will “do”, but this is one of the objectives!)
