Kindly note that the General Assembly will be preceded at 15:45-16:30 pm by the presentation:
Research uptake - do our communication habits stand in our way?
Biologist and plant pathologist turned communicator, Nick Quist Nathaniels, lists communication habits – including his own – that have probably contributed to poor research uptake. Becoming more aware of these habits and of useful communication concepts and practical tools, and applying them in a development process, has shown potential to improve our engagement with the public and with decision makers. This can generate greater interest and participation in research and use of results. Examples are given, including the value of visual methods such as participatory video. A planning template is presented for integrating communication actions throughout a piece of research. The presentation also draws on recent work by DFID on research communication.
Please note that DDRN is not able to refund members’ travels for participating in the GA.
