Clarity and Traction: Communicating Academic Research Clearly for Traditional and Social Media

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Colleen Sharkey (international media relations manager) and Aranka Szabo (digital content manager) of the CEU Communications Office will share best practices for communicating research in lay language, engaging your audience and making an impact through traditional and social media.

Check out the Facebook page of the event at this link.

The discussion is part of our series: “The Open Academic: Innovative Ways of Engaging in the Public Sphere

Through a series of workshops and discussions we aim to give the CEU community the skills and tools needed to engage in debates in the public sphere in innovative, unconventional or ‘non-academic’ ways. Taken together, the events will foster a university-wide conversation about the role of academics and academic knowledge in public debates. Each session is devoted to a different mode of dissemination including comics, podcasts, popular writing, op-eds, social media, visualisation of data, policy briefs and audio documentaries.
