Presenting your research through the media is an effective and efficient way to communicate with large audiences. This course provides an ideal introduction to the media and how to use it to promote your science.
The course is tailor-made for scientists working on BBSRC science and follows a bespoke programme created by our media office.
The course is aimed at scientists with limited, or no experience of working with the media, although it can be valuable practice for researchers who have already dealt extensively with the media.
The course is delivered by practising print and radio journalists and has a strong practical flavour. The course provides the opportunity to practise managing the thrills and challenges of a live radio interview without worrying about it being broadcast and will also develop your skill at writing for a general audience.
Tutors include two of the most likely points of contact for a scientist:
- Experienced BBC science reporters
- Local radio journalists
