I’m looking to get as many students and staff members at BU (both academic and professional services) to complete our annual public engagement survey. Public engagement is about two way interaction with the public to generate mutual benefit, for example running a Festival of Learning event to share research outcomes, consulting with a public panel about where research is needed, or running a project in collaboration with a community partner. It has lots of great benefits for researchers, the community, and the university, and because of this, I want to make sure we’re doing it in the best way possible. This survey aims to understand our current strengths as an engaged university and identify areas that we can improve on using the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement’s EDGE tool. It takes between 5 and 10 minutes to complete, and if you leave your email address at the end you’ll be entered into a prize draw with the chance to win a £50 Amazon voucher.
