Media training for staff

A media training day that will help academic and senior administrative staff to enhance their understanding of the media and develop effective interview skills will take place on Friday 19 May 2006.

The day-long course is free and will cover a range of topics on print and radio broadcast media, including: how the media works, what the media wants and working with the press office.

The course is run by the University Press Office and is delivered as a mix of theory and practical sessions, which include an opportunity to have a go at a practice radio interview.

Presenters on the course include Wendy Barnaby, who has worked for the BBC and is now editor of Science & Public Affairs and a correspondent for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and Dr Jon Copley, an academic and a former news editor of New Scientist, together with Tony Trueman and Andrew McLaughlin from the University Press Office.

Places on the course are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
