Academics are professional thinkers and communicators. They are writers, speakers, innovators, teachers and leaders and can do this through a wide range of platforms, such as journals, books, blogs, lectures and seminars (public and teaching), videos, podcasts and more. Academics endeavour to contribute to improvements in practice, influence a new generation of professionals, and develop innovative ways of thinking about some of the key issues in their field.
