There is no doubt podcasts are one of the most accessible “windows” through which to view your work\, and your podcasts should reflect the quality of your research. \nIt is the communication skills of the podcaster\, and his or her ability to tell a good story\, that makes a podcast effective and attractive to a wide variety of audiences. We help you to pitch your podcast correctly to the target audience\, to organise your thoughts and consider the best ways to present them. We will give you the skills to present the podcast in a talk format\, and the interviewing skills to make an interview/conversation style podcast. \nAll participants will have the opportunity to practise both formats\, an audio/video straight talk and an on-camera interview. \nThe workshop does not offer training in technical skills (recording and editing a podcast) because facilities differ from university to university\, but the trainers supply the participants with a list of useful ‘how to’ links. \nThe Objectives \nThe course enables participants: \n• to communicate effectively in their podcasts \n• to pitch their podcasts correctly to the intended audience \n• to choose the best format for their podcast \nThe Learning Outcomes \n• To understand the challenges of attracting online audiences \n• to be able to pitch a podcast correctly to the intended audience\, including non-specialist ones \n• to know how to tell a good story in a podcast \n• to know how to plan\, structure and present a podcast \n• to know how to interview colleagues for a podcast \n• to be able to record a podcast in both straight talk and interview formats \n URL: LOCATION:Engine Shed\, Bristol\, Station Approach\, Temple Meads\, Bristol\, BS1 6QH END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Europe/London:20191202T093000 DTEND;TZID=Europe/London:20191202T163000 DTSTAMP:20191211T155811 CREATED:20191029T100616Z LAST-MODIFIED:20191125T134158Z SUMMARY:Writers' Retreat December 2019 DESCRIPTION:The SWW DTP’s Writers’ Retreat gives students the opportunity to devote a whole day to writing in a quiet\, structured and supportive atmosphere. \nThe retreat is facilitated by Pam Lock\, GW4 Developing People Officer and a postgraduate researcher herself. Pam has organised similar events for the Faculty of Arts at Bristol and the Bristol Doctoral College\, with great success. \nYou will need to arrive ‘ready to write’ but may bring any materials (books\, data etc) with you of course. There will be some short discussions on good writing practice and how to approach your writing as a professional task but the vast majority of the day will be devoted to writing without distraction. To this end\, there will be no internet\, no mobile phones\, etc during the writing periods but laptops are welcome for writing purposes. \n URL: LOCATION:Roman Baths\, Roman Baths & Pump Room\, Bath\, Somerset\, BA1 2QH END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
