Communication & Multimedia Design faculty, Dr. Emeka Umejei, recently participated in a "writing for impact" workshop at the Johns Hopkins University in Washington, DC, United States of America.
The CMD professor was among the 12 researchers whose works were selected from across the world to attend the fully funded workshop from October 10-11, 2019.
The workshop was organized by the China-Africa Research Initiative (CARI) at the Johns Hopkins School of International Advanced Studies (SAIS).
The workshop was focused on “coaching African scholars to improve the impact of their writing, by turning academic research into formats more commonly read by general audiences as well as policymakers."
Dr. Umejei spoke to our team: "It was not for us to present papers but coaching scholars from this side of the divide on how to translate academic research into formats amenable to public consumption."
