Breakfast workshop: Media session
A practical introduction in the world of mass and social media
Why should you put your precious time and energy in media appearances or social media? How do you get the attention of journalists? And what are the secrets of giving a good interview? An interview or a Twitter message can both boost and ruin your scientific career. This makes a well-considered media strategy a must have for every scientist.
This interactive session will introduce you into the world of mass and social media. You will learn how to formulate your personal media strategy and how to choose the right media to pro-actively use media for your purposes. You will also get a glimpse of the way journalists work and how you can help them find you and become interested in your message. Finally the basics of giving an interview will be addressed.
Karin van den Boogaert presented several (science) programs on radio and television and Hermen Visser is a science journalist.
