Online Workshop: Effective Visual Communication

Kursbereich 3: »Wissenschaftliche Methoden«

Target Group

PhD Students and postdocs of all research areas


Visualizations are at the heart of science and science communication. In this class, we’ll discuss the basics of why great visuals matter, where and how to apply them and then dive deeply into how to build them. We’ll be looking at your specific topics, identify areas that can be enhanced and made more understandable by visualization and then work on executing those. Areas of use are grant proposals, scientific papers and posters, and of course scientific presentations. We discuss basic rules of visualization and always keep your specific topic in mind.


Dr. Sashima Läbe has many years of experience in science, with a special focus on dinosaur tracks. In her work in paleontology with all its neighboring disciplines, visuals are vital. Additionally, she has been working as a science coach and trainer in the field of communication to support young scientists in creating visuals and effective communication. She lives in Bonn with her family.
