Create a Research Website or Blog Workshop for Scientists & Researchers

October 20 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm CEST


If you want to set up a blog for your research group or start a professional blog for yourself where you can share your science, research, or experiences, you not only need a place to write your content, but you need to know how to do it and how to optimise it. By the end of this interactive workshop, you’ll have a completed WordPress blog (or website with blog) ready to publish with your very own domain name.

What we'll cover

This one-day, online, interactive workshop will cover:

  • Getting to know WordPress
  • The purpose of blogging
  • Defining your objectives and audience
  • Structuring your blog and website
  • Setting up your blog and website
  • Posts, pages, images, and videos
  • Comments and moderation
  • Designing a simple look-and-feel with WordPress themes
  • Adding extra functionality with WordPress plugins
  • How to write for WordPress
  • Search engine optimization
  • Your blog and the social web
  • Security and WordPress maintenance
  • Backing up your WordPress site
  • Understanding hosting, domains, and going live

Who is this for?

This workshop is suitable for scientists, researchers, and subject-matter experts who want to create a website or blog for themselves or their research departments.

By the end of the day

The goal of this workshop is for participants to publish their own website or blog within a month of being part of this workshop. By the end of this workshop, participants will have a WordPress website or blog that has a custom structure and design and that is more or less ready to go live (depending on the content). A half-hour “go live” session will be offered one month from the course during which time participants will buy a domain and hosting, make their websites live, and submit their new sites to Google for indexing.
