Summer School for PhD students
The University of Glasgow hosts the Guild PGR Summer School as an online event. The overarching theme for the week would be research communication, encompassing many important topics relevant not only to the PhD experience, but also to future career plans.
Info about event
The Guild Summer School will provide opportunity for discussion, reflection, and practical skills development. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on research communication in their own PhDs, and to develop/enhance their skills in this area via group work, workshops, and a variety of experiential activities. Putting the knowledge and skills gained throughout the week into practice, participants will work together to eventually produce an online publication on research communication, which would be available to all PhD students.
We will draw on the expertise of staff and students in the University of Glasgow Research Beacons, cross-disciplinary areas of research excellence, who will develop and deliver content based on their extensive experience in both working within cross-disciplinary teams and working with other institutions, funders, practitioners, policymakers and charities. The participants will also be presented with topics such as managing a social media profile and presentation techniques using a range of media (including face to face and through film, animation and blogging).
The participants will also be presented with relevant topics such as communicating research to diverse audiences, non-academic audiences, communication within a multidisciplinary team, communicating with external stakeholders and communicating with the media.
