PGR322 - Introduction to Public Engagement – 8th & 15th November 2021 at 11am – 12.30pm

How can we engage the public with our research? Who are the public anyway? And why does any of it matter? This two-part course will answer these questions, giving you a set of easy-to-use tools that can shape your future public engagement activities.  Aimed at PGR students and early career researchers with little or no prior experience of public engagement, each session will help you develop skills and an understanding of public engagement with research, as well as help you consider possible public engagement you can carry out with your own research. PGR students / Research Staff can book their places here.
