Upcoming scholarship event: Presenting your scholarship to different audiences: impact and outreach 

Dr James Williams (Senior Lecturer in Science Education) leads this face-to-face workshop on presenting your scholarship to different audiences. Whether speaking on BBC radio, writing for peer reviewed journals, his weekly column in the Argus, or a chapter in an academic book, James adapts both content and delivery for his specific audience. This hands-on workshop utilises James’ experience and provides you with the opportunity to present your scholarship to different audiences, helping you achieve recognition, impact and outreach. Location: Pevensey 1B2. University of Sussex. 

Open to all colleagues at the University. Book via Eventbrite.
