Join Tyler Shores (University of Cambridge ThinkLab Manager) for a live training session on how to write for a non-academic audience. Public engagement is becoming an ever-increasing necessity for academics. Writing for various stakeholders and wider audiences -- and not just for academics -- can be challenging. How do we balance scholastic rigor with the need to distil complex information to non-specialist audiences? Getting your research in front of policymakers, collaborators, potential funders and industry is key to making sure your research is heard and for you contribute to timely discussions. Tyler will provide guidance and advice on how to present your research in a clear, concise way that can help you make your research accessible and relevant to wider audiences.
