About the workshop

The Science Blogging Workshop is a one-day workshop that forms part of Imperial College London Graduate Schools’ Transferable Skills Training Programme.

The aims of the workshop are to:

  • Introduce and discuss the reasons graduate students at Imperial College should blog
  • Describe how to get started blogging from a practical point of view
  • Suggest what you could blog about and how to keep writing
  • Point out some potential pitfalls of blogging as a working scientist
  • Network and share ideas with other Imperial College bloggers

The workshop incorporates a practical exercise designed to introduce students to writing a science blog post. The results are posted on this site! For many of our participants, this is their first ever blog post.

The first workshop took place on 9 March 2011 and a second workshop took place on 6 July 2012. We plan to run the workshop again in 2013. Postgraduate students at Imperial College will be able to sign up via the Graduate Schools.
