Looking to sharpen your communications skills for a public audience? This course forms part of the ‘Communications’ strand of the RDM Learning and Development Programme.
The Conversation is an independent, not-for-profit media outlet that uses content sourced from the academic and research community. It is a fantastic way for researchers to reach new audiences with their work, with articles gaining thousands of readers.
In this session, delivered by an Editor from The Conversation, you will learn what elements of research and expertise could interest the public, and how to communicate it. You’ll also understand the style, tone and structure of articles written for the public. As well as gaining insights into writing for The Conversation, this course is invaluable for those wishing to write for other public facing channels, such as blogs.
