Zen & Ant’s tips for Ignite and blogging success

Zen & Ant’s tips for Ignite and blogging success

This bird knows the deal about outreach (click the links in the post to find out why).

So, my fearless co-instructors for our Outreach 101 class (Zen Faulkes and Anthony Salvagno) have been giving great outreach advice lately on social media. In case you missed their thoughts, I thought I would do a round-up via blog post.

This week’s topic for the class is Ignite talks and Zen recommended a great blog resource for quickly creating a great Ignite talk.

Ant, who happens to be an ace graphic designer, wrote a fantastic blog post about how to develop a killer presentation.

And lastly, once you get an outreach program going as a scientist, how do you keep it going? There is no one better than Zen to answer this question, given that his blog NeuroDojo has been going for well over a decade. Zen was a moderator of a session last year at Science Online on the topic of “Blogging for the Long Haul.” Check out the video of the session here or a Storified version of the session here.
