The University of Glasgow proposes to host the Guild PGR Summer School in 2020. The overarching theme for the week would be research communication, which encompasses many important topics relevant not only to the PhD experience, but also to future career plans.
• Communicating research to diverse audiences/non-academic audiences
• Communication within a multidisciplinary team
• Communicating with external stakeholders
• Communicating with the media
This theme will provide opportunity for discussion, reflection, and practical skills development. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on research communication in their own PhDs, and to develop/enhance their skills in this area via group work, workshops, and a variety of experiential activities. Putting the knowledge and skills gained throughout the week into practice, participants will work together to eventually produce an online publication on research communication, which would be available to all PhD students.
They will draw on the expertise of staff and students from the University’s Glasgow Research Beacons, cross-disciplinary areas of research excellence, who will develop and deliver content based on their extensive experience in both working within cross-disciplinary teams and working with other institutions, funders, practitioners, policymakers and charities. Other staff from across the University with appropriate expertise will develop resources and deliver sessions on topics such as managing a social media profile and presentation techniques.
