Scientific communication skills

What makes you a successful academic? In addition to doing solid, meaningful, and pioneering research, it is crucial that you communicate effectively. How do you do that? How do you make complex material accessible to the general public, write a readable thesis or article, present a keynote speech or inaugural lecture, convince a committee, and stay in control in the media?

Wageningen in’to Languages helps academics communicate successfully and with more pleasure about their research with colleagues and a wider audience.

The Wageningen in'to Languages courses are excellent training for professionals. It was very intensive, but highly productive for my learning path

Despite multiple appearances in the media and positive reactions, I never really got beyond ‘doing my best’ in a self-taught way. Only an external perspective can help you move forward then, and potential avenues for improvement became painfully clear during the course. I really found out how much nuance there is to communicating well in the media. I think lots of academics could benefit from media training.
