Science Communication: How to effectively blog? (online workshop)

As a PhD student or Postdoc, you have to talk about your research to different audiences.
Discussing your research with other scientists in your field might be easy, but the situation changes when your audience is not familiar with many of the terms.
Blogging can be very useful for researchers: not only does it help improve your writing skills, but it also increases your visibility for the general audience and journalists.

You’re hereby invited to the workshop hosted by Marieke Hohnen from Hakuna Matata, Science & Media:
Science Communication: How to effectively blog?
