Researchers are now expected to be able to communicate their work outside academia – but this requires a very different approach and writing style to those used in academic papers or grant bids. This course helps academics understand how to think about the audience they’re writing for and tailor what they write accordingly. It provides them with the skills needed to write accessible and engaging copy. Although the focus is on writing for the media or for project websites (opinion pieces, blogposts or news items) the skills are transferable to impact statements and lay summaries.
The course is designed to work with a maximum of eight delegates per trainer.
Who should attend:
Anyone actively carrying out research – from PhD students onwards, although it’s probably less suitable for students in the first year of their PhD.
