Can you capture what your research is about, ‘translating’ where necessary, in a way that engages people who might not share your background? In this GRADskills workshop for research postgrads/staff you will get a chance to hone this skill. You will learn to articulate your research succinctly without dumbing it down or making it too technical. And in doing so you will clarify (to others and perhaps to yourself as well) what it is that you do – and why it matters. This is an optional workshop for the Public Engagement Portfolio.

What previous participants have said about this course:
- “Very helpful if you are thinking of tweeting or blogging about your research, or if your academic writing is too ‘wordy’.”
- “It is very useful to learn to communicate the complex research in a simple/concise manner.”
- “I like Mimo’s workshops, they teach you a lot of skills & make you think differently about how to present & write your research clearly.”
