creative communications

  • Want to learn how to make your own podcast?
  • Have you heard about or seen scribing and wondered how this could help you  tell people about your own research? 
  • Ever wondered if you could write a blog?

Then maybe the ‘Creative Communication Series’ is for you.

 

What is creative communication?

Creative communication aims to engage and inspire the audience. Creative communication products can include podcasts, videos, animations, infographics, interactive websites and more engaged written pieces. Creative communication can be used at any stage of a research project from recruitment right through to the sharing of the findings.

Why a seminar series?

This series of seminars will help researchers at all levels to learn and develop knowledge and skills to communicate their research in more creative and accessible ways. Throughout this series we hope to:

  • Highlight the importance of communicating research messages beyond academia and across disciplines using a broad range of techniques to appeal to different audiences;
  • Encourage researchers to think about communicating their research early in the research proposal;
  • Give researchers the skills and knowledge to communicate their own research more creatively in the future and;
  • Understand the practicalities of using different media techniques in communicating research.

 

We will host a seminar once every two months. Each seminar will be 1-2 hours long, depending on the topic and identified interest from attendees, and will be recorded and shared via videoconferencing facilities at Truro Knowledge Spa and Plymouth John Bull Building.

The series will aim to cover a range of topics including:

  • Blogs
  • Digital marketing
  • Maximising impact
  • Vine style video clips

​The first seminar set the context of creative communication and why it is so important and useful. This session also covered some fundamentals about how to start thinking about creative communication for your project. The session was recorded and is available to view under Past Seminar Events. 

Where possible and where attendees express interest, further meetings or workshops can be arranged with speakers on the afternoon of the seminar. Please register your interest in a further meeting or workshop on the registration form above or email Becky Whear to discuss further.
