Course outline: This workshop aims to provide researchers with necessary knowledge and skills to communicate their research to the wider public. Researchers learn first-hand from an experienced journalist how to publish their research in newspapers to reach non-academic audiences. The workshop also familiarizes students with social media channels such as Twitter, which can serve as a tool for communicating research ideas and findings.
