Successfully communicating your research is an essential skill for all researchers. You will have many occasions to inform others of your research, whether in writing, presentations or in networking with other researchers, particularly at conferences. You may also want to inform others outside your discipline. Exploring different ways to convey the information can also affect how you view your own research.
Here are some upcoming opportunities in the LDC Development Programme to explore new ways to communicate your research:
Communicating your Research through Storytelling 28-Mar 13:00 – 16:00
Storytelling is a powerful and effective method for engaging with your audience. This fun and interactive session will provide practice in discussing details about your research and research aims and help you to articulate the core essence of your research to a wider multi-disciplinary audience.
Webinar: Presentations – Preparing an ‘Elevator pitch’ 1st Apr 12:30 – 13:30
A good ‘elevator’ pitch will help you communicate your research in a concise manner, to help you network at conferences or when meeting potential future employers. In this webinar we will discuss approaches to help you prepare a convincing pitch.
