Sharing Your Research Interests Through Blogging

Sharing Your Research Interests Through Blogging

A workshop presented by UCD IT Services and UCD Library

Please book your place by clicking on the Begin Registration link at the bottom


This is a practical, hands-on workshop exploring the use of Google Blogger for informal research communication with colleagues and peers.  You will learn how best to blog about your own research interests and exchange ideas with your fellow researchers.

In the workshop you will:  

  • Discover how some academics and research students use blogs
  • Set up your own blog
  • Practice blogging - write a blog post, link to other blogs of interest and add comments

Following the workshop, we encourage interested participants to continue blogging.  At the workshop, you will be invited to sign-up for a follow-up one-hour session a week later, where we can discuss progress with your blog and discuss any issues arising.
