Communicating is the literacy which enables learners to succinctly summarise and share their work and ideas. It has a dynamic relationship with knowledge creation but focuses on the dissemination, rather than creation, of ideas. Communicating effectively creates a strong and influential public identity. Digital curation is an important element of this.

Communicating your work with an audience is an important part of the research process, and can happen in many different ways, from publishing a paper through to tweeting.
