Develop your skills and experience as researchers in this workshop

This session will focus on how Scholars can engage others successfully with their research. Scholars will learn about simplifying key concepts in their research for a ‘non-expert’ audience and will be able to practice building a narrative to make their research successful and engaging. Scholars will also explore skills needed for formal presentations to industry related or academic audiences.

This virtual session will be highly interactive and give Scholars ample opportunity to discuss their ideas in breakout rooms throughout the session and also during Q&A towards the end of the workshop.

This workshop is part of the CSC’s Development Training Programme for the 2020-21 academic year.

CSC workshops focus on professional and practical skills and are designed to be interactive, with small groups of Scholars and Fellows taking part in each event.

Further details of the workshop agenda will be provided to participants on the day.

Please see the framework for public engagement handout as a preview to this workshop.

This workshop will be run by AccessEd, a non-profit organisation aimed at promoting fair access to university for all young people. Alongside running in-school programmes for under-represented pupils, they also work with researchers across the world, training them to focus on outreach and public engagement skills, career readiness, and leadership development.

AccessEd workshops are designed and delivered by qualified teachers and academics with extensive experience of training researchers across the UK and internationally.
