Lecture: What scientists can learn from improvisational theatre
Many scientists try to communicate about their research and field to their participants, stakeholders, and a wider audience. Unfortunately, their message sometimes gets lost in a one-way street of one-size-fits-all information. Complex scientific findings are not or hardly translated to the target audience, who are expected to passively absorb knowledge like a sponge. How do you change this one-sided dynamic? Enter improvisation! Training in improvisation techniques can not only help you improve your rhetorical skills, but also better empathize with your target audience. Thanks to improvisation, science communication can become a two-way street, with room for creativity, the courage to be yourself on stage, and to trust yourself if something goes wrong. In this interactive lecture, Ben Verhoeven gives a sneak peek into how you can use improvisation to create a real connection with your audience.
