Webinar: 21st Century Tools for Sharing Your Science – Video Abstracts and Podcasts, Two Practical Examples and Success Stories
This webinar will highlight two initiatives designed to help scientists disseminate their research: (1) We Share Science, an online platform for science videos (video abstracts), and (2) Parsing Science podcast, the stories behind the science, as told by the researchers themselves.
Speaker: Ryan Watkins, PhD, Professor, George Washington University, Founder of We Share Science and co-host of Parsing Science
Dr. Watkins will introduce two platforms that help scientists disseminate their research through today’s more accessible online media.
1. He will explain how researchers are using the online platform We Share Science to create and share video abstracts about their science, and he will highlight examples of successful use cases of using the platform as part of a broader communications and dissemination strategy.
2. He will also show how researchers can work with Parsing Science, a podcast where researchers share the unpublished stories behind their scientific discoveries. From unexpected challenges to surprising results, researchers breakdown the scientific process to tell the stories that don’t make it into research journals. Dr. Watkins will share examples, lessons learned, and advice on reaching new audiences.
The Digital Scholar Webinar Series introduces health researchers at USC, CHLA and beyond to digital approaches and tools relevant to their research. The series showcases the potential and limitations of digital approaches health researchers need to be aware of. All webinars will be accessible afterward on the Digital Scholar Program page.
