Today, web communication is more important than ever, both in the academic and non-academic world. To reach a large audience as fast as possible, research results and other news are frequently broadcast on internet blogs and homepages, via podcasts, on social media, etc. This course is designed to help PhD students present their research results on the web and takes the form of lectures combined with hands-on workshops during which the participants will make their own blog, get introduced to Wordpress homepages, learn how to produce video, audio, text, and graphics for a web presentation and how to use the social media and other networking websites, and will be introduced to a selection of the most useful (free) tools available. These are also useful skills for those who want to pursue job opportunities outside of academia. The Centre for Teaching Development and Digital Media at Aarhus University will conduct the course.
