The popular hour-long media workshop presented by the Media Office in the Corporate Communication and Marketing Division is available online for departments and other entities.
“The workshop is an informal, but interactive discussion highlighting seven benefits of being available to the media along with seven ways in which the Media Office can support departments in this," says Mr Martin Viljoen, Manager: Media. “The workshop can be tailored to the needs of the specific department – for example incorporating a larger component on science communication or the use of social media."
According to Viljoen, research has shown that a good media profile encourages good research. “Based on articles by SU staff or where staff members were quoted as experts, as well as radio and TV inserts, an outline of the media landscape and a short explanation are given on how colleagues can utilise the media to generate more exposure.
