Research Communication in Action

Research Communication in Action (RCiA) was a transferable skills course developed and delivered by SIBE which enabled PhD students and early-career post-doctoral researchers in the University of Edinburgh to develop their public communication skills. The course combined generic communication skills training with subject-specific training and collaboration with public engagement activities taking place in the University. A novel aspect was that it combined communication training with real practical experience.

Following the end of project funding, the expertise and methods developed have been used by other bodies, e.g. in communication courses offered through Beltane Public Engagement Network in association with the University of Edinburgh Institute for Academic Development (IAD).
