Run by Media Players International, these two one-day workshops will help you understand what makes for good communication through the general media and through short podcasts, the two most useful vehicles for reaching the public. They also directly address the issues of impact and media strategy required by the Research Excellence Framework.

This interactive workshop leads from identifying the elements of a good media story in academic research, through the challenges of dealing with the media and the competing pressures of academic and journalistic methods to final on-camera interviews and playback analysis.
