Thinking creatively about research dissemination: Blogs and podcasts

ECRs need to think creatively and broadly about the different ways that they can disseminate their research. The aim of this session is to explore the potential of alternative modes of research dissemination beyond academic articles and books by looking at the potential of blogs and podcasts as means of disseminating research. In this informative session, Rebekah Ackroyd (ECR rep) will be joined by Gerry Czerniawski (Lead BERA blog editor) who will share ideas and tips on successful blog writing. Adam Hart and Louise Hawxwell will also highlight their experiences of creating BERA podcasts touching on the practicalities as well as the benefits of this medium. There will be time for Q&A from the audience.
