Science Communication I: Blog
When communicating your own research, a blogpost is a quick and easy way to publish your own thoughts and explanations in your own time, and by your own rules. Without an editor giving you deadlines, and without reviewers giving you headaches, a blogpost can be ideal to test your ideas with colleagues, explain your work to friends and family, or share some of your triumphs and frustrations. It may not have an audience of millions, but it has its own link, and will always be there for you to show to anyone.
This workshop will help you structure your thoughts into well-readable text, choose pictures with appropriate licenses, make use of social media in spreading a blogpost, and you will get a chance to publish your own text to show the world - with editing help from your workshop host, and online hosting provided to you.
The Workshop consists of 4 webinars à 3 hours:
- Mon, Jan 24, 1.30pm - 5pm
- Tue, Jan 25, 9am - 12.30pm
- Mon, Jan 31, 1.30pm - 5pm
- Tue, Feb 1, 9am - 12.30pm
It is organized as a transferable skills workshop by the PIER Education Platform (PEP) and open to all PhD students or postdoctoral researchers in the fields of physics, mathematics or computer science at DESY or Universität Hamburg.
Theresa Schredelseker holds a PhD in Molecular Medicine and investigated genetic factors during embryonic brain development of zebrafish before switching to science management. She now works as Postdoc Coordinator at PIER, the strategic partnership between DESY and the Universität Hamburg. Being a blogger for many years (genderwoche.de), she enjoys sharing her passion for science communication with early career researchers.
