Welcome to CLIPS

Science relies on effective communication but unfortunately communication skills are often considered as being “soft” or skills that you simply pick up along the way. In the same way that you learn to be a good scientist, you can learn to be a good communicator. Furthermore, being a good communicator will make you a much better scientist!

The CLIPS website was built to provide some of the essential information on communication skills that a science student needs during their degree and in the workplace.

The 3 videos below will give you a quick overview of the aspects of communication that you should consider before you communicate in any situation.
