Pitch it Clever – salient visual clues in way-finding

Posted by on February 22nd, 2018 · Cities, Public space

By Aida Afrooz, City Futures Research Centre.

Universities Australia’s Pitch it Clever competition challenges researchers to talk about their research in a video of no more than 2 minutes.

Pitching it clever, I narrate my research story in this short video about ‘Salient Visual Clues in Way-finding’. If you don’t know what that is now, watch the video and in 2 minutes you’ll know all about it!

Pitch it Clever is an engaging way for researchers to publicise their research and compete with peers.  As a researcher, so much of our work is about writing, so this is a really good opportunity to talk about our research.

At the same time, it’s very challenging not to use any jargon and transfer your message to the audience in a short time and by telling a story. It’s helped me to look at the research as a whole and think about the concept of my research and why I’m doing it.
