About this Unit
It is now more important than ever for researchers to explain their research to the public. Although it can be challenging to translate specialist knowledge for non-specialist readers, this is the skill students will receive training for in Writing Beyond the Academy. By following the model of The Conversation, a widely popular knowledge translation platform, students will learn the principles of public audience writing, how to pitch to an editor and how to work with their feedback, and produce their own public audience essay.
