Whether PhD, post-doc or established researcher, we all want to tell the world about what we are doing. If not, we fail to get external recognition, validity and critique on and for our work. Traditional, often dyadic forms of communication (i.e. academic journals and conferences) are the major routes for dissemination; however technology is simply changing the way we ‘get our research out there’ and develop our own academic profile/brand/presence. Becoming a digital researcher, and working more in the cloud is increasingly important for all the above; particularly in the social sciences.
In my workshop (taking place on 28 June, 2013 at the Research Student Conference at Anglia Ruskin University), we explore the simple technologies offering the 21st century researcher to do just this. The Prezi is written in a simple, accessible language and offers a step-change for all those willing to embrace digital technologies.
