Teaching approach

Because we apply better what we memorise, Agent Majeur has developed methods and tools for effective communication, both oral and in writen. Taught during our training courses, they ensure long-term progress.

SELL method

Agent Majeur created the SELL method to help scientists prepare for an oral presentation. It encourages them to ask themselves the right questions, in the right order.

SWORD method

Agent Majeur created the SWORD method to support scientists in their writing. In 3 steps, it allows them to design and write clear and engaging documents.

The 6Cs of popularisation

Under the same banner, Agent Majeur’s 6C’s of science popularisation bring together proven popularisation techniques.
