Impact & Research Communication Skills with Josie Dixon

  • Room 2BC, OU Camden 1-11 Hawley Crescent London, England, NW1 8NP United Kingdom (map)

This interactive workshop is designed to develop the necessary skills for effectively communicating the significance and value of specialist research to those outside the discipline. Participants learn how to make a powerful case for their project in grant applications, job applications or publishing proposals, and develop their ability to engage wider audiences for presentations, public engagement, outreach and dealing with the media. Practical exercises encourage a focus on the purpose, impact, outcomes, benefits and applications of participants’ research. Josie has given this workshop in over 30 universities in the UK, USA, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Norway and Sweden.

'This workshop has been a path-finder and a confidence-builder. I am more excited about my research, clearer about its potential, and more informed on how to move ahead.' - Previous University of Kent attendee

'Makes one more aware of the meaning of our research outside academe. Josie talks about things that our supervisors don’t. I liked the practical information, tips, concrete answers to problems. Josie is an excellent communicator, kind, open to ideas.’ - Previous University of Kent attendee
