The Conversation

The Conversation is a news and opinion website written by academics working with a team of professional journalists to publish short pieces that bring academic insight to the general public.

Zoom training courses

Online video training courses

Four short online training courses are available for researchers, academics and PhD candidates to access at a time to suit them.

The courses aim to help academics understand how The Conversation works, the editorial support that is provided, and to develop the skills to write for non-academic audiences. 

The courses are being mapped to Vitae’s researcher development framework and therefore can contribute to professional development.
