PDS: Using Video to Promote Your Research

Thursday, February 23, 2017 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm
Elings 1601


Creating effective videos about your research with your smartphone Online
video can be a very effective way for academics to connect their research to
many different groups. For example, in many fields, video abstracts are a
method of communicating research to others in the same field. Video is also
a powerful tool that researchers can use to engage potential research
funders, investors, and parts of the broader public. In this session, I will
show how academics can use their smartphone to simply produce videos about
their research, as well as how to create compelling story lines for those
videos. At the end of the session, session participants will have learned
extremely practical approaches to video. They will put that knowledge to
immediate use, as participants will also have devised a plan for their own
engaging video about their research.
