Visualising & communicating your research

Wednesday, 25 March 2020

Research impact is linked to the ability to engage others with it. Indeed, peer review, publication and presentation are core academic standards but so is public/stakeholder engagement - formal and informal. Importantly, and as researchers, we need to be able to communicate our research effectively so our work can inform future activities be these continued research, linked activities or contextual application.

This workshop will be delivered in partnership with academics and artists who specialise in illustration. Specifically, it will explore the medium of message and the development of visual communication. This will include the use of illustration, presentations, posters, and the psychology of communication/visual impact. The workshop will be hands-on and participants will engage in creative activities.

To get the most out of this workshop, participants are asked to bring a piece of their research they would like to work on. This could be an abstract, poster, presentation, paper or other output. They are also asked to bring a laptop.



By the end of the workshop, successful participants will be able to:

1.     Articulate the necessary elements for impactful visual communication;

2.     Construct a visual presentation for a named piece of research;

3.     Critically analyse visual research communication to discern elements of good and poor practice;

4.     Explore the role of creativity in research communication.
