About the webinar
After publishing your research in academic journals or monographs, you need to actively promote your research to a wide variety of audiences to encourage its use or application. However, communicating with non-researchers requires special skills in stakeholder analysis and selection of the most appropriate content, structure, style, and language. In this webinar, we’ll examine important differences between academic and non-academic genres and how to effectively promote your research to general audiences.
The webinar is about 60 minutes long. The final 15 minutes will be set aside for live Q & A.
This webinar covers:
1. Types of non-academic writing
2. Promoting research to the public
3. Tips for plain-language writing
