Are you interested in engaging the public with your research but have no idea where to begin? Do you already have an idea for a public engagement event and want to make it a reality? If you’ve answered yes– or even maybe– to either of these questions then our forthcoming workshop on Developing a Public Engagement Event is for you!
Our workshop offers a step-by-step, practical guide to turning your research into a fully-fledged public engagement activity through a series of interactive talks, hands-on activities and take-away resources that will help guide the way through the murky world of engaging with the general public.
The session will explore:
- What public engagement can look like
- How to construct a narrative from your research that can become an event
- How to design a public engagement activity and adapt this to different audiences
- How to evaluate your events and make the evaluation work for you
By the end of the session you should feel fully equipped to deliver some public engagement with research and feel confident to participate in some of our upcoming events.
The session will run from 1pm – 4pm on Wednesday 15th November 2017 on Talbot campus (room tbc). To find out more and book your place, click here.
If you want to arrange a more 1-2-1, tailored session around public engagement with your research, or would just like to chat through some ideas, we are always available to provide support. Just drop Natt Day (our Engagement Officer) an email and she’ll be in touch.
