The he(ART) of research

The he(ART) of research

Jive Media Africa has kicked off the research communications initiative ‘he(ART) of research’ together with the University of South Africa. The programme focusses on supporting academics to get creative about sharing their research and reaching even wider audiences through creative media outputs. The general public is generally unaware of the incredible work being undertaken at institutions of higher education across South Africa and Africa. Finding innovative ways of communicating research will allow it to have more impact in our society and our world.  Jive Media Africa will be presenting a hands-on course in research communications over the next 3 months. The course will include writing in a popular style, and creating images, videos and presentations to find wider audiences  for research. The final outputs will be presented at the UNISA Student Showcase in August. Watch this space!
