The Public Engagement Working Group (PEWG) has organized a 2 hour media training workshop with Malcolm Love (ex-BBC producer, also Famelab International Trainer and occasional broadcaster) who will be giving expert hints, tips and advice on presenting to camera this Tuesday 6th May at the Learning Centre UG10 2-4pm. This event has been organized in support of the Less Talk, More Action‘  video competition recently launched by the PEWG. This competition is open to all UoB postgraduates, post-docs and senior researchers. You can submit a video individually or as part of a research group. All information on the competition can be found HERE, including an example video as well as a  how-to tutorial video on how to create and edit a video if you’ve never made one before. (Please note the competition deadline is May 30th).
 
Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to get helpful support on presenting to camera and learn the do’s and don’ts of making content decisions. This workshop will be useful to anyone who would like to present their research to camera in the future, whether for the ‘Less Talk, More Action’ competition or for other opportunities that may present themselves in the future. This media training is free for all UoB researchers and research students to attend.
 
Malcolm Love will be talking at the Learning Centre UG10 at 2-4pm: Free for all research UoB students and research staff to attend. We hope to see you there!
 
The PEWG will also be organizing a drop-in session on May 13th for those who would like help on the technical side of making a video. This will kindly be hosted by MDS Web Team members, Shawn Mayall & Angela Slater. We will post the location and time of this drop-in session here so check back again soon
