Most of us don’t go on job interviews without some sort of practice. Ditto for professors (or any spokesperson for that matter) in doing media interviews. Media training is key and is the main topic we cover on episode 14 of FIR on Higher Education.
Media trainer, former journalist and Thinkers 50 co-founder Des Dearlove discusses why media training is important for academics, how to best conduct a media training session and advice on how professors can sharpen their message.
