This module comprises a series of six workshops based around a range of multimedia that will enable participants to build a professional identity both online and offline. By the end of this module, participants should have an actionable, usable portfolio.

  • What is your story? (Simon Hall and Tyler Shores)

This workshop contains tips on constructing a compelling and powerful narrative, along with soundbites that can make important points around your research stand out. This session focuses on using social media, how to write a post that will pull people in and come away with a clear idea of how to sell your research:

• Crafting your online and social media identity • Knowing your potential audiences • What do your audiences *really* need to know? • Beyond Google searches: how to be discoverable online
