Writing and Communicating in the Sciences: iBiology Video Lecture (by Guillermo Rodríguez)

Project Published 8/21/18 Last updated on 5/26/19

You will take on the role of a young research neuroscientist, composing and recording a 4 to 5-minute video using your smarthphone, tablet or computer camera (and Adobe Premiere Pro editing software) for submission. Your goal should be to present organized information about your subject that is accurate, relevant, informative, and concise, particularly for a viewing audience. You may find that in order to produce work that would be compelling and clear for a viewing audience, you will need to drastically cut down and simplify the information that you wrote about in your article.

A successful video lecture will:

  • • Clearly explain the significance of the subject for listeners today
  • • Plainly and concisely highlight the most important features of a recent research finding
  • • Present information in an organized format and style, following the iBioseminar format
  • • Adopt an engaging tone that entertains as it informs
  • • Have clean and crisp delivery on a video between 4 and 5 minutes in length
  • • Include a carefully edited transcript that matches the video seminar
  • Adobe Premiere Pro

    Edit media in its native format and create productions for film, TV, and web.
