Academic Writing Programme: Online Dissemination for Impact

Course overview Date, venue & booking

This workshop discusses the importance of dissemination and impact in research projects, looking at possible strategies for raising the profile of your project through digital media. The session will allow participants to share best practice and discuss their specific questions about dissemination for impact, but the workshop will also focus on communication strategies for different platforms and audiences. There will be an emphasis on non-textual communication as well as a discussion on writing for digital media. Participants will be able to receive peer feedback on their current approach to dissemination and create a dissemination action plan of for their next project.

Who is it for?
The workshop is open to all Research Active Staff and final year PhD students at Warwick University

Session objectives:

By the end of the workshop you will have:

  • Identified good online writing practice, including issues around style, clarity and non-textual communication.
  • Discussed the practical and creative issues surrounding different forms of digital communication.
  • Evaluation of impact.
  • Created an action plan for the online dissemination of your next/current research project.

Is there anything else I need to know?
Make sure that you have chosen an effective research website, blog, Twitter, article, online journal to discuss as part of this workshop. It could be the pages for your own research project, or a website associated with a particular conference, centre or event, but it should be one that you feel disseminates that research project's findings or aims to a wider audience.
