The Royal Society of Biology are holding An Introduction to Exhibition Design training course on 10th March 2016, 10:00- 17:30 at The Royal Society of Biology, Charles Darwin House, 12 Roger Street, London, WC1N 2JU.
This is a practical day course for biologists involved in public engagement and outreach.
Who is it for?:
This practical course is suitable for those who may need to create a small display, for example:
– science communicators
– scientists working in public engagement & outreach
Creating an exhibition or small display can be a daunting task: they are a complex, multimedia format. How do you make sure your ideas are conveyed clearly? What is the best visual representation for this idea? What exhibits should I select? Using case studies and exercises, this course will introduce participants to exhibition making from the development of an exhibition concept to the final product.
Dr Rachel Souhami has over 18 years’ experience of exhibition development, working with national and regional museums, independent organisations and exhibition design companies. Rachel has trained budding exhibition developers for ten years, and has lectured in science studies, museum studies and exhibition development at Imperial College, The University of Manchester and Westminster University. Rachel’s knowledge as a practitioner is enhanced by her research, which examines the working practices and design processes that lead to the successful implementation of an exhibition concept.
This event has been approved by the Royal Society of Biology for the purposes of CPD and can count as 18 CPD points.
