The rapid proliferation of online platforms for academic opinion blogs are seeing increasing numbers of academics writing and posting about their subjects, to help bring their research to wider audiences.
The Faculty is a financial contributor to The Conversation to ensure that its research community is offered the best possible chance of increasing profile via the globally-leading academic Blog.
The Conversation is also an essential resource for the media at home and overseas who routinely search the site for sources of news and expertise to input into print, broadcast and online outputs.
A number of academics in FBMH have already had success on the blog covering subjects as diverse as mental illness and addressing public concerns about how developments in virtual technology could help psychologists learn more about the human psyche.
Health Editor, Clint Witchalls, will be visiting the Faculty to run a training session to enhance writing and engagement skills, helping to ensure that Faculty blogs are selected for publication. The training will cover creating opportunities for sharing research, increasing personal profile and broadening networks.
