Videos from last week’s event are now available on the shiny new WonkComms Youtube channel and embedded below for your viewing convenience.
As a reminder of what you will find therein, here is the event blurb:
In a fast-moving digital world, the traditional think tank research output is changing. It is no longer adequate for think tanks to rely solely on the impact of a single research publication to inspire and motivate their audience. Tools like infographics, multimedia presentations, blogs, podcasts and videos are increasingly becoming the norm for think tank research.
But with think tanks vying for attention in a crowded and busy online world, is there a danger that the communications tail wags the research dog? Is there value in preserving the traditional think tank publication? Should communications be seen as a means to an end or as an end in itself? And is the nature of research changing because of the rapidly changing communications environment?
