In this climate of knowledge exchange and community engagement, communicating to an audience outside the academic world  is becoming increasingly important for research professionals. Not only do universities want their academic staff to develop a profile and be seen in the public arena, but there also is an educated and interested community out there keen to hear what goes on within Academia.  

Learning how to communicate effectively to different audiences and across different mediums for knowledge exchange and community engagement is a key skill for any researcher who wants to create change.   

This interactive workshop is presented by Dr Scott Downman from the School of Communication and the Arts.
