Getting Savvy about Research Audiences

How does a researcher meet all their obligations these days?

By being savvy about the research game and productive with their time!

Such researchers understand different types of professional language, and have a range of engagement strategies for their publications, grants, and external connections.

One of the key things in securing good results for your research work is getting to know what others’ perspectives and priorities are, and whether you can productively align with them. This enables you to forge strong collaborative relationships within and across sectors, and presents you with efficient ways to build your research profile.

Research Whisperers Dr Tseen Khoo and Mr Jonathan O'Donnell will draw on their combined experiences as researchers, grant developers, research educators, and active research communicators to share practical strategies for being savvy about your research audiences and establishing an effective, well-rounded research career.

By attending this seminar, attendees will get to know:

  • How to differentiate audiences for their research
  • How to make the most of what they write
  • The importance of staying true to their core research

Presented in partnership with:
