This workshop seeks to enhance your oral presentation skills through considering delivery styles, the use of audio-visuals, content and structure.
Presenting Your Research to Different Audiences
It is increasingly necessary to present research in a range of contexts and to different audiences both within and outside an academic setting. This workshop will consider how presentations may be adapted for different audiences, academic and non-academic.
This session looks at the poster as a means of presenting your research. This workshop will look at the issue of design and content: what kind of information should be presented in a poster and ways in which it may be organised.
Conferences are valuable platforms to disseminate your research, as well as networking and honing your presentation skills. This workshop covers different aspects to surviving at conferences from finding the right conferences for you, submitting an abstract, getting the most of the conference itself and how to maximise the experience afterwards.
The aims of this workshop are: to identify the features of academic writing in different disciplines; to reflect on writing styles in your discipline and your own writing style in relation to this; and to consider the issue of ‘voice’ in academic writing and how you might develop a ‘professional voice’ appropriate to your field of study.
Writing for Journals
Writing for academic audiences is very different to writing for non-academic audiences, but there are additional differences within academic writing itself. There are very specific requirements to writing for academic journals and this session will focus on the specific skills you will need to develop to write for such journals. Discipline variations will be emphasized.
Pathways to Publication
This workshop will help you to plan how you publish your doctoral research. It will look at the different ways in which you can publish and the timing of publication.
Social Media and Research
Twitter, Facebook, Blogs: social media has become increasingly important for researchers both as a means for engaging more people with their work and as a way for sharing ideas beyond the traditional dissemination pathways. This session will look at the social media taht are particularly relevant and how they can be effectively utilized.
Giving Your Research Impact
The ability to demonstrate the potential benefits of your research beyond the academic sphere (for example, the socio-economic, cultural or health benefits) has become an increasingly important skill for a researcher to develop. This session will explore fully the meaning of impact its significance to your research.
Engaging the Public with Your Research
Public engagement has in recent years become central to the research agenda. The ability to share your research effectively with non-experts has become an increasingly important skills for a researcher to develop. This session will explore fully the meaning of public engagement and its significance to your research.
Engaging With Parliament
What is Parliament and how can we as researchers engage successfully with Parliament?
The aims of this session are to give participants the knowledge they need to engage effectively with Parliament and its various processes. At the end of this session participants will gain an understanding of the key ways to engage with Parliament as part of their research and identify when and how to effectively enhance this engagement.
