Do you enjoy writing about your research? Have you thought about starting a blog but do you feel unsure how to start? Then this new online blog training, especially designed for – and by – researchers from Utrecht University, may be helpful to you.

The online blog training is suitable for everyone who is aspiring to write about research and/or current affairs from an academic perspective, via a (personal) blog. Utrecht University researchers who already have experience with writing blogs will help you to get started. They will inform you about the benefits of blogging, your writing style, audiences, and all the other ingredients that are important when writing blogs as an academic.

Step by step – and in your own pace

In the training, seven key topics will be discussed, each illustrated by a researcher from Utrecht University. In short tutorials, accompanied by helpful additional information and tips and tricks, they educate you about the important ins and outs concerning (academic) blogging. Together, these seven topics teach you the basis that you need to get started. There is also a Teams group (for employees only) where bloggers can ask each other questions and help each other with their efforts.
