Public Engagement

The Royal Society's Engaging with Schools workshop: 16 March, London

Thu Nov 16 13:54:00 GMT 2017

This course will enable you to develop inspiring and relevant engagement activities for schools, designed to maximise the benefits of working with a school and provide you with practical skills and approaches.

Designed with early-mid career researchers in mind, the course includes sessions on understanding the school environment, exploring teacher and pupil expectations, considering learning methodologies and practical tips for pitching, designing and delivering engaging activities in schools.

This course offers you the opportunity to share experiences and learning with like-minded scientists, to explore approaches for engaging more effectively with schools and young people, and to reflect on your own activities and aspirations for working with schools.

This course will be delivered in an interactive and participatory style, combining discussion, reflection and activity based approaches.

As part of the training, you will have the opportunity to discuss your engagement work in a surgery session with the course providers and staff from the Society, as well as being linked to specific opportunities for engaging with schools.
