The Graduate Programme in Physical Activity & Musculoskeletal Health
This course will introduce the participants to how they can use news media and social media to increase awareness and dissemination of their research. The course will be a combination of lectures by journalists and researchers highly experienced in using news media and social media to promote their research and hands-on activities to initiate the process of increasing awareness of the participants’ research.
Participants on the course can use what they learn to increase the impact of their research on society. Furthermore, the increased awareness and dissemination can, potentially, increase their possibilities for receiving grants and be employed within research in the future.
