As a new researcher (with no or few publications), it is important to understand how you can communicate and promote your research and then evidence its impact in both academic and non-academic contexts. Demonstrating engagement and impact can have a significant effect on a researcher’s career with implications for funding, collaborations and, sometimes, promotion.

This workshop will introduce the basics of knowledge translation as well as the associated tools and strategies, including promotional strategies, traditional metrics, altmetrics such as PlumX and Kudos, social media and traditional media. This workshop not only introduces concepts and tools related to impact but also discusses available support to ensure that you are equipped to make your research visible while engaging with researchers and the broader community.

There'll be time for questions so bring yours!
