Overview of the Labs

Media engagement

One of the key objectives of Crucible is to encourage the participants to be ‘outward-facing’. One way of doing this could be by engagement with the media. In order to be able to do this, researchers need a good understanding of how the media operates. This workshop covers most of the areas that will come up in relation to researchers working with the media.

The session includes a series of filmed interviews with people who work in or have been exposed to the media. These can be used alongside guest speakers to answer some key questions that should be asked ahead of media engagement. The video files are downloadable along with an accompanying PowerPoint presentation and document containing notes on the session.
