The 'why' and 'how' of working with the media workshop

Wednesday 10th January 2018 at BPS Offices, Tabernacle Street, London

Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled.

Making an impact is increasingly central to the work of academics. Working with the media is a key way to ensure that our work is disseminated widely and reaches an audience beyond the academic community. It is also fun and very rewarding.

This workshop will explore why it is important to engage with the media across a wide range of outlets including TV, radio, print media and social media. It will then describe how this can be best achieved and the different ways academics can reach out. The workshop will involve information giving, problem solving, case examples and small group working and will aim to increase communication skills and decrease any barriers for working in this way.
