Course code: RP00441 /RSGRF
Mode of delivery: Workshop
Target audience: All doctoral students and research staff

About the workshop

Are you going to, or would you like to, deliver something creative at science festivals? 'Thinking about Bath Taps into Science' or 'The Festival of Nature'? Or perhaps you’d like to do something interesting at a different type of festival?  Then this course is for you.

In this practical workshop we’ll take you through a process for devising public engagement activities. Using real-world examples and hands-on activities, participants will devise a brand new engagement activity which could be used in a Pathways to Impact section of a grant.

The course will also help you think about how to evidence public engagement for the “research and scholarship” strand of promotion and probation criteria.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will:

  • consider the needs and interests of different non-academic groups
  • prioritise the purposes for engagement
  • experience a process for creating engagement activities
  • be introduced to a wide range of engagement activities
  • develop a project plan
