Event description

Description



About the session:
This first workshop in the ‘Blogging your research’ program introduces participants to the idea of blogging and its key benefits. It has two parts:

1. Introduction to blogging: Why would you do it? What do you need to consider? How do you write a blogpost?

2. ACTIVITY: A hands-on ‘shut up and blog’ session that allows you to craft your first blogpost!

**Note: BYOD (Bring your own device)

Why should I attend?

Learning to blog effectively brings together many great benefits such as knowing how to write in an engaging manner for broader audiences, focused networking, participating in (and leading!) conversations around your areas of expertise, and clarity around your research purpose.

Who should attend?
Researchers from any career stage who are interested in blogging. You do not have to have any blogging experience.

About the facilitators:

The ‘Blogging your research’ program is presented by two experienced academic bloggers.
