We don't think academics need to be media relations or communications experts but we do think that bit of specialist knowledge about communicating research and working with the media can help. We've developed a series of training workshops to help researchers learn the skills they'll need, particularly given the demands for greater impact from research. We also run a workshop for the press officers who have to do the rest, based on our expertise gained over many years of working in research promotion. All our courses can be delivered online or face-to-face and involve practical exercises based around delegates' own research or expertise.
Below you can find details of some of our most popular workshops, but we're happy to adapt these to suit your needs. We can combine elements of different workshops to deliver a course that meets your training objectives, in a format that will work for you. Just give us a call to talk it through.
Campus PR has vast experience of working with many institutions to achieve the best coverage for their research and this experience shone through with our one to one training sessions. I felt engaged immediately and could feel my confidence growing as each session developed.
Being able to spend time with individuals who have so much experience and success in higher education communications is a great opportunity for anyone starting out in the sector and I would thoroughly recommend they take up the opportunity.
I really enjoyed the workshops and I'll be making good use of everything I learnt! I thought you were engaging and I found it useful to hear about 'problem' stories as well as the ones that went smoothly.
The training really helped me to think about better techniques to aid in producing the best story. Definitely worthwhile!
