During the WEON 2022, there will be four interactive workshops that will take place on Friday June 10, 10.45 – 12.00 hrs. These workshops are included in the WEON registration fee.
Please mark your preferences for the workshop you would like to attend in the registration form.
Workshop 1: Pitching your research!
Being able to pitch your research is a major skill that can help with your presentations, publications and media interviews for peers, subsidy organizations or a lay public. In this workshop, Anne van Kessel will explain you more about why communicating about your science is important and you will learn how to do this.
If you want to explain your research clearly to any audience, writing a short pitch (and practicing it!) is the best start. To practice this, Anne will learn you how to define your main message and goal and to prepare a clear pitch that suits your target audience. Anne will tell you about the use of props and metaphors, and about the importance of a good beginning and ending.
The end product of the workshop is a short pitch that you will practice with your colleagues. Some of you will pitch for the whole audience and will receive feedback from Anne.
Please note: you will be required to prepare a small task in preparation of this workshop to maximize its effect in a short time.
About the host: Anne van Kessel
Anne van Kessel graduated cum laude in 2011 from Radboud University with a master in Medical Biology and a specialization in Science Communication. After her graduation, she started working as a freelance science journalist. She writes about (medical) biology for newspapers and magazines like NRC, Quest and NEMO Kennislink. And she regularly contributes to science podcast Onbehaarde Apen. She has also written three popular science books. She regularly gives lectures in science journalism at various universities and she has worked part-time as a science information officer at Radboudumc for six years.
Workshop 2: The art of …..scientific data visualisation
Clear communication of scientific findings is essential in academia. The importance of visual communication through tables, graphs, visual abstracts and infographics is more and more acknowledged. In addition, it is increasingly being recognized that visual communication can reach audiences far beyond the academic space.
Participants of this workshop will learn about:
- the (wide) spectrum of various data visualization types, from numbers to art
- the superpowers and limitations of our own visual brain
- the difference between and use case of exploratory and explanatory data visualization
- the design choices that help target your visualization to a specific audience
There will be short exercises during this workshop. You do not need to know a certain visualization program/tool for this workshop: a piece of paper and a pen is all you need!
About the trainer: Sara Sprinkhuizen
Sara Sprinkhuizen studied physics at Utrecht University and did her PhD research at UMC Utrecht, studying MRI scanners. She moved to Boston for a post-doc in MRI scanner physics at Harvard Medical School. After her post-doc she decided to focus on data visualization, which led to collaborations with De Correspondent and MIT Media Lab and to having her first interactive data visualization 'Biota Beats' presented in the Stedelijk Museum Breda for their 'True Beauty' exhibition. The workshop is organised by Graphic Hunters, where Sara runs a training on data visualisation.
Workshop 3: Transform your perspective through art
The healthcare system faces many challenges as became even more apparent in the covid pandemic. Researchers and practitioners deal with high-stakes and highly demanding work. Importantly, this may negatively affect the professionals in this system. Healthcare professionals under continuous pressure may be at risk of losing their reflective attitude and holistic perspective on patient care. By including art in education, we have the opportunity to democratize the academic space, resulting in an open learning environment with room for reflection and affective learning. Our research shows that an arts-based program helps participants to reflect on their role as professional. Next to that, they explore their perspective on the relation with the patient and healthcare as a whole. We invite you to experience this for yourself during this workshop. Interaction and creativity are central elements in this session. You will leave refreshed, with a new perspective on your own (professional) development, your education and/or research projects.
About the trainers
dr. Tamara van Woezik - Postdoc researcher at Radboud Teachers Academy
Tamara van Woezik is a researcher of education and educator with a background in philosophy and pedagogics. Her PhD project focused on self-directed learning in the new (bio-) medical sciences curriculum at the Radboudumc. Her current research explores learning processes of teachers and students during transfer to university.
dr. Jur Koksma - Associate professor at Radboudumc Health Academy
Jur Koksma is a learning researcher and innovator, based at the Radboudumc. There he leads the research program on Transformative Learning aimed at understanding health care innovation as a learning process and the learning processes involved in improving person-centered care. By making use of the ‘patient-centered’ strategy of the hospital, Jur Koksma and colleagues were able to design and develop a new medical curriculum that has patient participation and learner ownership as core design principles. He is also a member of the executive board of GAME, The Global Alliance for Medical Education.
Thieme Stap, MA - PhD candidate at Radboudumc Health Academy
Thieme Stap investigates healthcare innovation as learning processes. He looks at all levels involved: patients, healthcare professionals, middle management and board members. He uses participatory and arts-based approaches to evoke and capture transformations on the work floors of care institutions.
Workshop 4: Real-world data: the art of modelling
Routinely collected (real-world) data, for example available through electronic health records, are a potentially valuable source of information for epidemiologic research. Such data are, for instance, used to develop prediction models. Using artificial data, we will discuss different steps of developing a prediction model that aims to predict return to work after hospitalization for covid-19. These data are available at www.rolfgroenwold.nl/WEONworkshop.htmland participants are encouraged to have a look at these data and develop a model themselves, prior to attending the workshop. Using this example, we will distinguish between technical considerations when developing a prediction model and the art of modelling.
About the speaker: Rolf H.H. Groenwold, LUMC
Rolf Groenwold is professor of clinical epidemiology at the Leiden University Medical Center. His research focuses on developing methodology to make better use of routinely collected healthcare data, particularly for research into the effects of medical treatments.
