Thing 10 – Communicating complex ideas

23 Research Things Cambridge

Welcome to Week 4 where we will be looking at the theme of Communicating Ideas.

We’re doing something a little bit different for Thing 10, so rather than show you a new tool we’re going to talk about the often difficult nature of communicating research and complex ideas to audiences other than the academic community who may not have the same knowledge that you do. An integral part of any academic work, having the skills to communicate your subject area and what makes it interesting is important especially if you find yourself wanting to do public engagement and outreach.

We spoke with Cambridge University’s Ryan Cronin about his work with researchers and how he has translated specialist facts into something more accessible to a wide range of audiences. So, check out the podcast interview.
