The British Science Association are inviting researchers from BU to attend a one-day training workshop which will develop their public engagement skills. This one-day workshop addresses the growing need for researchers to be confident at communicating and understanding the impact that their research has on society.
How does your research have an impact on society? And how does social media engage the public? Are there any ways of communicating your research better?
- It will help you to gain confidence in engaging the public with your research
- It will also help to develop your understanding of the place of science within science and the impact that your work has on society.
- It’ll make you aware of existing public engagement platforms
- You will be able to learn about how social media can be used to communicate science to the public
- You will be able to find your research ‘hook’ – what is the most exciting thing about what you do and your research?
The workshop will consist of practical activities which will help you to explore your work’s impact on society and improve your communication skills. It’ll also give you guidance on how to engage with different audiences.
The fee will include all resources, a full day’s tuition with experienced practitioners and refreshments during the day.

Where: Dana Centre, London
