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.
Online training courses
Four short online training courses are available for researchers, academics and PhD candidates to access at a time to suit them.
- The Conversation: Who we are and how we work with academics
- How to write for The Conversation
- How to pitch to The Conversation
- Writing for Insights (longer articles)
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.
