See photos from our latest Science Media SAVVY media skills workshop, held in Dunedin 27-28 March.
It was a jam-packed two days of practice interviews, discussion, hands-on exercises and exposure to a range of fascinating research projects and new ideas.
We had a fantastic group of motivated scientists with us, and they had excellent things to say about the experience:
“Friendly, experienced and knowledgeable team — made a daunting experience very easy!”
“There aren’t many opportunities that merit two whole days of an early-career scientist’s time, but this was worth every moment.”
“This workshop was simply fantastic — a great intro to the media for scientists with lots of practical experiences. Absolutely would recommend it to colleagues.”
Thanks to the University of Otago’s Division of Sciences for providing our venue. A special thanks to the Otago Daily Times for hosting our newsroom tour and to our media panelists: Joanna Wane (North & South), Rebecca Fox (ODT), Ian Telfer (Radio NZ) and Max Bania (ONE News), pictured below.
