Oral Presentations – Rosie Plimmer

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 – Prof. Mary Nolan

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.

Using Posters to Communicate Your Research – Dr Mary Lewis

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 how it may be organised.

Pathways to Publication – Charlotte Taylor

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.

Writing for Journals – Prof. Stephen Parker

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 emphasised.

Giving Your Research Impact – Dr John-Paul Wilson

This session will explore fully the meaning of impact its significance to your research.

Social Networking: the benefits for researchers – Dr Geoff Kohe

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 that are particularly relevant and how they can be effectively utilised.

Engaging the Public with Your Research – Prof. Maggie Andrews

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 skill for a researcher to develop.  This session will explore fully the meaning of public engagement and its significance to your research.

Engaging Parliament with your research – Paul Browning

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.
