Then maybe the ‘Creative Communication Series’ is for you.
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.
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:
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:
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.
Locations: Exeter South Cloisters 3.06, Plymouth JBB MR8, Truro KSpa F10.
Tara Lamont is deputy director of the NIHR Dissemination Centre which promotes NIHR and other research findings to decision-makers in health and care. Tara will be talking about ways of reaching non-academic audiences, tailoring outputs and using appropriate platforms and approaches to improve the reach and impact of research. She will use some worked examples of creative dissemination which have made a difference with tips for researchers and informal advice on what funding boards are looking for in applications and dissemination plans.
Kirsty Heber-Smith, science communicator from the University of Oxford will be giving a talk on the university’s digital interactive platform Oxford Sparks and how researchers can use social media to interact with a new audience.
Kirsty will then lead a Q&A session for anyone interested in learning more.
RECAP recording will be available after the event. Register attendance here.
