Transforming Postgraduate Research: Engaging with the Digital World

The event will include keynote addresses by:

Transforming Postgraduate Research: Engaging with the Digital World is a one-day interactive training initiative for postgraduate students across the arts and humanities interested in public engagement and digital media. It aims to provide introductory training for postgraduate researchers in using the digital to create exciting means of disseminating academic research beyond the academy to achieve maximum impact, in other words, digital engagement.

Comprising keynote lectures and practical workshops with leading experts in this field, students will explore the value of digital engagement and how a range of digital platforms can be used to enhance their academic profile and produce innovative and creative outputs of their research. In addition to our two keynote talks and the range of workshops, the event will also include a student-led Q&A and discussion session between participants and our panel of experts.

Topics that will be covered include:

Social media(s) and academia
Blogs and academic websites
Creative technologies and impact
Showcasing and developing educational resources
