Impact and Research Communication Skills
Domain: D3 Engagement and impact

Format of Workshop: Information and Discussion/Practical
Suitable for: All

This workshop is designed to develop the necessary skills for effectively communicating the significance of your research, to non-specialists, and explores the increasing demand for research to have an impact outside the academy, particularly outside the immediate environment of fellow specialists in your own discipline or subject area.
The relevance of this training will be far-reaching in a range of contexts (grant applications, seminar and conference presentations, publications, job applications, REF submission and all forms of contact with the media) central to any researcher’s career. There are practical skills-based exercises and opportunities for discussion and feedback throughout. The workshop will cover:
* making the case for why your research matters
* defining your contribution to the field
* finding the story in your research and how to announce it
* implications and applications of research
* scholarly, pedagogical, non-academic impact
* transferable communication skills for non-academic careers
