Workshop 4: York

Workshop 4 (UoY, M24) – Skills Training: Public and entrepreneurial skills.

Screenhouse Media, who specialise in supporting scientist engagements with the media will provide training on how to speak to diverse audiences, how to find unique research stories, write effective press releases to encourage media interest, and negotiate the common pitfalls and challenges of working with media.

As part of the day ESRs will also be given unique access to a state-of-the-art, professional TV studio set up at the University of York’s Department for Theatre, Film and Television (TFTV). YMT will discuss how we can generate shared documents with Wikimedia. YAT will run a day-long workshop on Public Awareness in Bioarchaeology, and we will draw on the interdisciplinary expertise of YAT staff, modelled in the same format as a successful series of training days for school teachers.
