Media training - essential media

Provider business unit: Strategic Communications team »

Strategic Communications and Public Affairs (SCAPA) runs regular free media skills workshops for ANU staff and postgraduate (research) students.

These workshops give you an insight into how the media works, what journalists want from you and the benefits to academics from engaging with the media.

The workshops provide practical sessions on interview scenarios for radio and TV in the ANU media studio; social media, featuring a live tweeting exercise; and field videography for media broadcast.

Most of the sessions will be held in the Ross Hohnen Room in the Chancelry, East Road, ANU, except for the Thursday 31 May session, both of which will be held in the Mills Room within the Chancelry.
