It's easy to quantify someone with a great proficiency in athletics, performance or industry. What we grade is the difference in levels of skill, application, and result. Applying the same logic to how we communicate might not seem useful given that it is something that we have all done since the day we were born.

This course argues that communication is a reflex rather than a learned skill; a response to the environment in which you find yourself, and one that is impossible to stop. If our argument is valid, it would be better to harness and exploit that reflex consciously.

About the event

This is a two-day course designed to provide an environment in which you will practise shaping communication in order to disseminate your work in a variety of settings, whether traditional or incidental.

Topics explored such as impact, involvement and engagement will help you build your confidence through experimentation, discussion, and feedback.

This course aims to prove that there is much to be gained by learning to control levels of skill, aptitude, and application that will mean conscious communication can result in being quantified as compelling.

Who is it for

This event is aimed at research staff and postgraduate researchers.

Cost: Free to UWE PG researchers and research staff
